Five Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary Episcopal Alumni Elected Chairmen of USCCB Committees This Morning

This morning at the Fall General Assembly of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, members voted for chairmen-elect of several committees. I’m most pleased to inform you that five of the bishops elected are alumni of our own Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary.

  • Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, ‘72, Archbishop of Louisville, was elected Chairman-elect of the Committee For Religious Liberty.
  • Bishop Kevin Rhodes, ‘79 (College Seminary), Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, was elected Chairman-elect of the Committee on Doctrine.
  • Bishop Joseph Cistone, ‘75, Bishop of Saginaw, was elected Chairman-elect of the Committee on National Collections.
  • Bishop Michael Burbidge, ‘84, Bishop of Arlington, was elected Chairman-elect of the Committee on Communications.
  • Bishop Nelson Perez, ‘89, Bishop of Cleveland, was elected Chairman-elect of the Committee on Cultural Diversity.

They will assume these positions for three year terms in November 2018.

Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. Daniel J. Sullivan
Vicar for Clergy
