A message from Bishop Perez at the close of the 2018 USCCB Fall General Assembly

News of the Diocese

November 15, 2018

As the annual Fall General Assembly of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops draws to a close, I would like to share with you my thoughts and observations on the bishops' meeting this week. While I was initially disappointed with the Holy See?s request that we hold off on actual votes concerning our proposed action plans, I do feel that our discussions were very frank, productive and hopeful.

This week, I have had the opportunity to speak with my brother bishops about the work that has been done and that which still remains to be done to ensure the development and implementation of robust protections in every diocese preventing all forms of abuse of power, sexual abuse and the abuse of conscience in the Church.
