U.S. Bishops to go to Haiti

 |  NCR Today

NCR has learned that the USCCB Sub-Committee on the Church in Latin America is establishing a special advisory committee to assess the on-going relief work in Haiti. As part of the effort, a delegation of bishops will be traveling to the island next week. The USCCB will be announcing the new committee and the visit soon.

Archbishop Jose Gomez, who chairs the subcommittee, will also head the advisory panel. It will also include Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap, the Archbishop of Boston, who first served as a bishop in the Caribbean in the 1980s and has extensive contacts there. Bishop Thomas Wenski of Orlando and Auxiliary Bishop of Brooklyn Guy Sansaricq, the only Haitian-America in the USSCB will also serve on the advisory committee. Some members of the group will head to the island next Monday to assess the work being done and what additional efforts can be achieved.
