New President for the USCCB

The bishops of the United States are currently meeting in Baltimore, and atop a slate of new officers in various roles, including Bishop Robert Barron as Chair of the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston has been elected as President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Cardinal DiNardo is a friend of Catholic music and offered an impressive lecture at the last NPM Convention, which he hosted in his diocese. I’m not sure what it is about Texas that attracts theologian-bishops, but it is a wonderful thing.
