The Gospel of Christ and the teachings of his Church guide the work of the USCCB. The work of the Conference is rooted in three general mission goals. The first mission goal is to act collaboratively and consistently on vital issues confronting the Church and society. The second is to foster communion with the Church in other nations, within the Church universal, under the leadership of its supreme pastor, the Roman Pontiff. The third goal is to offer appropriate assistance to each bishop in fulfilling his particular ministry in the local Church.
The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference (also known as the Irish Episcopal Conference) is the assembly of the Bishops of Ireland exercising together certain pastoral offices for Christ’s faithful on the whole island of Ireland.
The Conference enables the Bishops to exchange views and share their wisdom and experience in order to promote the common good of the Church in Ireland. General Meetings of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference normally take place on a quarterly basis.
The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference seeks to build effective consensus among the Bishops, thereby contributing to the unity of the Church in communion with Pope Francis. Through its links with the Church in neighboring countries and across the world, it strengthens and enriches efforts to increase faith and proclaim the Gospel message to all nations. At the same time, the Conference fully respects the personal authority, responsibility and ministry of each individual Bishop within his own diocese.
