We are honored by our guest this week, Msgr. J. Brian Bransfield is the General Secretary of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and we talk about the upcoming Convocation of Leaders to be held July 1-4 in Orlando, Florida. This summer, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will be convening an unprecedented gathering of key leaders from dioceses and Catholic organizations from all across the country in order to assess the challenges and opportunities of our time, particularly in the context of the Church in the United States. This has been an ongoing initiative of the Bishops’ Working Group on the Life and Dignity of the Human Person. The gathering will assemble Catholic leaders for a strategic conversation, under the leadership of the bishops, on forming missionary disciples to animate the Church and to engage the culture.
Reverend Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield is a priest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, was elected general secretary of the USCCB during their Fall General Assembly, November 17, 2015. Ordained in 1994, Msgr. Bransfield holds a doctorate in moral theology from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. He is the author of several books, most recently Life Everlasting: The Mystery and the Promise.
