The Gospel of Christ and the teachings of his Church guide the work of the USCCB. The work of the Conference is rooted in three general mission goals and organized into three key areas of responsibility.
To act collaboratively and consistently on vital issues confronting the Church and society
To foster communion with the Church in other nations, within the Church universal, under the leadership of its supreme pastor, the Roman Pontiff
To offer appropriate assistance to each bishop in fulfilling his particular ministry in the local Church
During their General Assembly in November 2016, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops approved a four-year strategic plan to guide the work of the Conference from 2017 through 2020. A new four-year plan is set to be voted on in November 2020. Learn More
As Christ's vicar, each bishop has the pastoral care of the particular Church entrusted to him... Though each bishop is the lawful pastor only of the portion of the flock entrusted to his care, as a legitimate successor of the apostles he is, by divine institution and precept, responsible with the other bishops for the apostolic mission of the Church. -- Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1560.
