Agenda announced for fall US bishops’ meeting
October 18, 2016
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has announced the agenda of its annual fall meeting, which will take place from November 14 to 16 in Baltimore.
The bishops will vote on a strategic plan for 2017-20, which will seek to further the conference’s current leading priorities: evangelization, family and marriage, human life and dignity, vocations and ongoing formation, and religious freedom.
The bishops will also hear a report from the USCCB Task Force to Promote Peace in Our Communities and elect a new president, vice president, and five committee chairmen. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the conference’s current vice president, is the leading candidate to succeed Archbishop Joseph Kurtz as president.
