In support of the Diocese of Gary's values and mission, the Office of Human Resources is committed to provide quality services which promote a work environment that is characterized by fair and just treatment of staff, open communication, personal accountability, trust and mutual respect as it relates to all personnel operations.

This will be accomplished with integrity, responsiveness and sensitivity to the employees of the Diocese of Gary.
