Backgrounders on the 2013 Papal Transition


To assist media in their coverage of the papal transition, the USCCB Office of Media Relations has prepared these backgrounders, some in cooperation with other organizations, on topics of interest regarding the transition and on the Catholic Church in general.  

For additional resources, see our general backgrounders page, the USCCB Media blog, and the Catholic News Service and Vatican news sites.
