Committee on Cultural Diversity

On January 1, 2008 a reorganization of the USCCB went into effect. One of the results of this was the creation of one of the largest committees of the Bishops' Conference, the Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church. I was honored to be elected first chairman of this committee at the bishops' November 2007 annual meeting in Baltimore.

It is a source of great pride to see the universal Church well represented in our Committee and to be entrusted by the USCCB with the task of furthering the participation of all God's People in the life of the Church.
