Independent Compensation Program for Victim-Survivors of Abuse by Diocesan Clergy (ICP)

As part of our long-standing commitment to provide pastoral care and to support the healing process for victim-survivors, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, along with five other dioceses in California, is participating in the new Independent Compensation Program by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Diocese of Fresno, Diocese of Orange, Diocese of Sacramento, Diocese of San Bernardino, and Diocese of San Diego for Victim-Survivors of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests (ICP). The ICP is administered independently of the Church by Kenneth Feinberg and Camille Biros, widely recognized as premier dispute resolution administrators in the country. The program is now accepting registrations from any person who has been sexually abused as a minor by diocesan priests of the participating dioceses, no matter when that abuse might have occurred. Funding for the program in our Archdiocese will come from self-insured reserves, monies set aside for this purpose. We pray that this new program might provide another avenue toward healing and hope. For more information on the ICP, please visit


​Programa de indemnización independiente para víctimas-sobrevivientes del abuso sexual por sacerdotes diocesanos (ICP)

Como parte de nuestro compromiso de proporcionar atención pastoral y apoyar el proceso de sanación para las víctimas-sobrevivientes, la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles junto con otras cinco diócesis en California, están participando en el nuevo Programa de Indemnización Independiente por la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles, Diócesis de Fresno, Diócesis de Orange, Diócesis de Sacramento, Diócesis de San Bernardino, y Diócesis de San Diego para Víctimas-Sobrevivientes de Abuso Sexual de Menores por Sacerdotes Diocesanos (ICP, en inglés). El ICP es administrado independientemente de la Iglesia por Kenneth Feinberg y Camille Biros, dos expertos en administración de reclamos reconocidos a nivel nacional. El programa ya está aceptando inscripciones de cualquier persona que, como menor de edad, haya sido abusada sexualmente por sacerdotes diocesanos de las diócesis participantes, sin importar la fecha de cuando ocurrió el abuso. Los fondos para el programa en nuestra Arquidiócesis vendrán de reservas de seguro designadas para este propósito. Oramos para que este nuevo programa pueda proporcionar otra vía hacia la sanación y la esperanza. Para obtener más información sobre el ICP, por favor visite
