VOTF Initiative for the Selection of Bishops – Letter to your local (arch)bishop

During the first week of May, VOTF sent to each American bishop a copy of our request to the Pope and the white paper on restoring a formal role to the laity in the process of recommending candidates for the Episcopacy in their (arch)dioceses.   In follow up to this mailing, we now encourage our VOTF members to write a personal letter to their own (arch)bishop asking him to support and foster this important request .

More Voices in Action Updates

Here's a brief update on some projects our Voices in Action teams are pursuing:

The Bishop Selection committee from the Universal Church Reform Team earlier this month sent the Pope and four key bishops a document about injecting meaningful lay input into bishop selection. If you missed that news, here's where to find it. By May, the committee will also send the document to U.S. bishops. Stay tuned for their next steps!
