Pray for Our Bishops

Our Bishops, successors of the Apostles, Fathers of the Church, will be meeting to discuss how to best govern the Church they have been entrusted with, under the Pope. Below is the schedule for their open secessions.

Bishops to meet in Los Angeles June 15-17

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The biggest church issue the U.S. bishops will face when they meet this June is a new English translation of the Order of Mass. They will also be asked to approve a 10-year extension of the annual collection for retired religious and a plan to write a message to teenagers on stewardship. They will be asked to approve a no-increase 2007 assessment on dioceses for support of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. They will discuss -- but not vote on -- plans for a major restructuring of the way the USCCB operates. The main focus of the discussion in June will be a reconfiguring of USCCB committees, with a major reduction in their number. The bishops are to meet June 15-17 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. The meeting will give Archbishop Pietro Sambi, who just arrived in February as apostolic nuncio to the United States, his first opportunity to address the entire U.S. hierarchy.
