The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced the appointment of a new director of its Office of Domestic Social Development, which coordinates the conference’s advocacy on domestic economic issues.

Mark Rohlena, president and CEO of Catholic Charities of Central Colorado, is an alumnus of Christendom College and the Ave Maria School of Law. He succeeds Kathy Saile, who now works for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The Office of Domestic Social Development is part of the larger Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development, which is headed by executive director Jonathan Reyes.

    I like Rohlena's alma maters. Let's hope we see a positive change in statements coming from the USCCB.
