In an interview with CNA on Monday, Bishop George Murry of Youngstown, who chairs the US bishops' newly-formed anti-racism committee, revealed the names of the seven other bishops who are committee members.
The bishop members of the committee, Murry told CNA Oct. 2, are Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta, Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit, and Bishop Martin Holley of Memphis.
Bishop consultants to the committee include Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago; Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore; Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice; and Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin.
Lay consultants to the committee will be announced later this week, Murry said.
