The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will elect their next president and vice president of USCCB at their meeting next month in Baltimore.
They will be elected from a slate of 10 candidates which are (and the envelope please):
• Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond of New Orleans
• Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap., of Philadelphia
• Bishop Blase J. Cupich of Spokane, Washington
• Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston
• Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles
• Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky
• Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore
• Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr of Cincinnati
• Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron of Detroit
• Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski of Miami
A lot of good names on the list. I’m not completely familiar with all of them. Obviously, Archbishop Chaput and Lori jump out at me. You guys rooting for anyone in particular?
