Mission

The Benefits Office provides benefit plan administrative and advisement support to all employees at a diocesan parish, school, institution, and agency.

The Benefits Office is committed to:

  • supporting and maintaining the Mission of the Diocese of Gary in all internal and external business interactions.
  • providing quality service with professional expertise to all Diocese of Gary employees.
  • respecting and safeguarding the confidentiality of all benefit information.
  • assisting employees in a way that encourages active involvement in their benefit plans.
