Ukrainian Metropolitan of Philadelphia Takes Part of June Meeting of USCCB
On June 16-18, 2021 the Ukrainian Catholic Archbishop of Philadelphia, the Most Rev. Borys Gudziak, took part in the virtual June Meeting of the Unites States Bishop Conference.
Along with the updates made by the different committees of the USCCB, the bishops have voted on the outline of the document on the Eucharist. The Committee on Doctrine will begin the draft of the document. The three chapters of the document will be: “The Eucharist, A Mystery to be Believed”, “The Eucharist, A Mystery to be Celebrated” and “The Eucharist, A Mystery to be Lived”. Preparation of this document started several years ago.
Additionally, following the recent Synods on Family at Youth (Rome, 2015 and 2018 respectively) the US bishops reflected on new ways to serve youth, young adults, and families.
The next General Assembly will be held in Baltimore, MD on November 15-18. The US Bishops hope to be able to gather in person for the Fall meeting for the first time since the pandemic of Coronavirus.
