Ethics & Integrity in Ministry (EIM)

Diocese of Austin Ethics & Integrity in Ministry Requirement

All Clergy (active and retired), Religious (Sisters and Brothers), Seminarians, diocesan, parish and Catholic school employees (full-time, part-time and stipend), and all adult lay persons who volunteer in ministry with minors or vulnerable adults, or in any ministry, program or organization that serves youth or vulnerable adults in any manner, or functions at a time and place where they are typically present, are required to be EIM Compliant.  Volunteers who are non-compliant with EIM are not permitted to serve in ministry. If you have questions regarding the Diocese of Austin’s EIM program please contact the Diocese EIM Office. 

If you have experienced sexual abuse and have concerns regarding attending the EIM Workshop, please contact Emily Hurlimann at (512) 949-2447 to discuss an alternative workshop arrangement.


New Applicants:

Submitting the EIM Application permits the Diocese of Austin to run a background check and creates an account where your workshop history is stored. Volunteers may engage in ministry once an application is approved, however your first workshop needs to be completed within 60 days of submitting an Application.

  1. Submit an EIM Application (one-time only)
    • Online Registration (fastest & most secure) – you will be directed to eAppsDB, the Diocese online database
  2. Attend an EIM Workshop after your application has been approved. Applications may take 1-2 weeks to process and approve. You may login to your account at any time to check your Organization Status found in the upper left hand column.


Sign Up for Workshops:

(Initial Application must have already been submitted)

In order to be EIM Compliant you must attend an EIM Workshop every 3 years.

  1. Login to your existing EIM account.  If you cannot log in but believe you have submitted an application in the past, contact the parish EIM site administrator, or contact the Diocese EIM Office for assistance. Do not create a duplicate account.
  2. Click the “Sign up for a Workshop” link found in the bottom right column.
