Archbishop Listecki is candidate for president of U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

The U.S. bishops are scheduled to elect the next president and vice president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops at their upcoming fall general assembly taking place Nov. 11-13 in Baltimore.

Each office is elected from a slate of 10 candidates who have been nominated by their fellow bishops. Milwaukee’s archbishop is on the list for president.

On being selected as one of the 10 potential candidates to become the next president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki says: “It is an honor to be selected as a potential candidate by my brother bishops for the role of president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Although I do not anticipate being elected, I feel privileged to be recognized with other great bishop leaders on a national level. I attribute my nomination to the great works and people of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.”
