U.S. bishops select new chairmen-elect of five USCCB committees

.- By a simple majority vote at their fall assembly in Baltimore, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has elected the new chairmen-elect of five committees.

By a 118-114 vote, Archbishop of St. Louis Robert J. Carlson was chosen over Bishop of Raleigh, N. Carolina Michael F. Burbidge to become chairman-elect of the Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations.

Archbishop of New Orleans Gregory M. Aymond was elected as future leader of the Committee on Divine Worship by a 126-110 vote over Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron.

Bishop Stephen E. Blaire of Stockton, Calif. will be chairman-elect of the Committee on Domestic Justice, after a 120-117 vote over the other nominee, Bishop of Venice, Fla. Frank J. Dewane.

The USCCB chose Bishop of Harrisburg, Penn. Kevin Rhoades as the chairman-elect of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth. He was favored by a vote of 145-93 over Archbishop of Kansas City Joseph F. Naumann.

On Saturday Pope Benedict XVI appointed Bishop Rhoades as the next bishop of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Ind.

Archbishop of San Antonio José H. Gomez was chosen by a 132-105 vote over Bishop of Laredo, Texas James A. Tamayo to become chairman-elect of the Committee on Migration.

Chairmen-elect serve for one year before assuming the responsibilities of chairmen, the USCCB reports.
