Cardinal George visiting Cuba as Castro government shows new interest in Church

Catholic World News - June 24, 2010

Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, the president of the US bishops’ conference, is in Cuba this week for meetings with Church and government leaders. The American prelate’s 2-day trip follows immediately after a visit to Cuba by Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States.

Cardinal George is returning a visit by Archbishop Dionisio Garcia Ibanez of Santiago, the president of the Cuban bishops’ conference, to Chicago last year. The trip comes at a time when the Cuban government has shown a new willingness to listen to the voice of the Catholic hierarchy.
