LATIN AMERICAN EPISCOPAL CONFERENCE

Requested by the General Conference of the Latin American Hierarchy, it was approved by Pope Pius XII in 1955. As an organ of collaboration among the bishops of Latin American, it elects a delegate to the General Conference whose responsibility is to study the problems of common interest, work out solutions, and help co-ordinate the activity of the Catholic hierarchy. Working closely with the Holy See, the conference meets annually and has a permanent secretariat.
