Statement from Daniel Cardinal DiNardo re. USCCB Vice President position

November 12, 2013

I humbly accept the privilege of being the new vice president for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. I congratulate the newly elected president of the conference, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, and look forward to supporting him in his role.

As Archbishop Kurtz and I embark on these responsibilities, I ask for the prayers of our fellow bishops, the faithful of the Archdiocese of Louisville, the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, and all Catholics as we work together for Christ and His Church.
