Who We Are

 

Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations

The Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations assists bishops, both collectively and individually, in promoting, supporting, and educating about the Church's pastoral needs and concerns for the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life within culturally diverse communities of the United States; and in addressing issues concerning the life and ministry of bishops. The committee develops foundational documents and appropriate resources that promote the effective ministry of the clerical state, consecrated life, and vocations.
