The U.S. bishops are set to vote on a 10-point statement, “Affirming Our Episcopal Commitments,” in which the bishops hope to regain “the trust of the people of God.”
The future Bishop of Syracuse, Father Douglas J. Lucia, recalled at a morning press conference announcing his appointment the words inscribed on the chalice gifted to him at his ordination in 1989: “Ordained to God’s Service.” “These words have been a beacon for the past 30 years of my priestly ministry and they set the stage for the next part of the journey with you. I am here to serve the people of the Diocese of Syracuse, Catholic and non-Catholic alike,” he said.
When the bishops gather in Baltimore starting June 11, Bishop W. Shawn McKnight of Jefferson City, Missouri, said he’s “hopeful we will have some progress made in moving the football” on the church’s response to the abuse crisis by approving several proposals to hold the bishops accountable.
