8. Msgr. Bransfield – USCCB Convocation of Leaders

Published: June 05, 2017

Our Host, Jim Friend, speaks with Msgr. J. Brian Bransfield, General Secretary of the USCCB, about the upcoming Convocation of Catholic 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 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 Bishop’s 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 engage the culture.

Reverend Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield is a priest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and was elected general secretary of the USCCB during their Fall General Assembly on 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.
