USCCB Mission Statement Released

The United States Council of Catholic Bishops recently posted a Mission Statement, on the official USCCB website.

USCCB Mission Statement

The mission of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is to support the ministry of bishops with an emphasis on evangelization, by which the bishops exercise in a communal and collegial manner certain pastoral functions entrusted to them by the Lord Jesus of sanctifying, teaching, and governing.

This mission calls the Conference to

  • Act collaboratively and consistently on vital issues confronting the Church and society
  • Foster communion with the Church in other nations, within the Church universal, under the leadership of its supreme pastor, the Roman Pontiff
  • Offer appropriate assistance to each bishop in fulfilling his particular ministry in the local Church
