Fall bishops' meeting 2013

Groups urge US bishops to speak on poverty, build 'church for the poor'

 |

Specifically, the groups said, the American prelates could make their national office a "bishops' conference for the poor" by drafting a new statement on the continuing economic crisis and by launching a nationwide poverty awareness campaign.
