This week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted on nine action items at their Fall General Assembly in Baltimore, MD. Among the items approved were:
  • Five short videos and an introductory letter to supplement "Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship," the teaching document developed to help Catholics form their consciences in voting and engaging in public life. The new materials address concerns such as the common good, immigration, abortion, poverty, care for creation, and civility in public dialogue. 
  • The 6th edition of the Program for Priestly Formation for use in U.S. dioceses
  • Election of three members to the Catholic Relief Services Board of Directors

The full list of action items along with the breakdown of votes can be found on the USCCB website.
