6. INSTRUCTIONS TO OBLIGATION OF CONFIDENTIALITY [Chief Apostle’s Instructions, as published by NACI]

Preliminary Remarks

The confidence of our Brothers and Sisters-in-faith in their ministers is the basic condition for the pastoral care. The bearer of a ministry must make every effort to consolidate this confidence and never misuse it. To that end, confidentiality has first priority. From a legal aspect, the obligation of confidentiality proceeds from the right to live one’s own life.

Who is subject to obligation of confidentiality and for how long?

In the first place, the ministers, but also all persons in charge of Church matters and pastoral tasks are subject to obligation of confidentiality. It is not limited by time and continues to be effective also after termination of an occupation.’
