WASHINGTON (April 26, 2005)-- A useful tool for identifying and locating members of the Catholic hierarchy in the United States is now available from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Department of Communications.
The 2005 Membership Photo Directory of the USCCB includes photos of the approximately 400 U.S. Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops, together with biographical information, mailing addresses, office phone and fax numbers, and where available, their e-mail addresses. It also includes listings for the USCCB committees on which the Bishops serve, their seniority (as determined by episcopal appointment or promotion), as well as listings by diocese and region.
The directory is available for $19.95 each (plus $3.50 postage and handling for the first four directories). To place an order, contact the Department of Communications by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (please note "Photo Directory" in the subject line) or by phone at 202-541-3200.
