Catholic Bishops Gather In New Orleans For Spring Meeting
Roman Catholic bishops from around the United States will meet Wednesday through Friday in New Orleans for their annual Spring General Assembly.
On the agenda is a discussion of the economy and its impact on marriage, helping typhoon victims and preparing for upcoming church-sponsored events on family life.
The bishops will also get an annual progress report on efforts to prevent the sexual abuse of children.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops holds the events twice a year.
