List Of The Catholic Bishops Of The United States

The following is a List of Lists of groups within the Roman Catholic Church in America. By combining lists of bishops from each of the groupings, one may create a single List of the Catholic bishops of the United States, including the five overseas dependencies of the U.S. The Catholic Church in the United States comprises 177 Latin Church dioceses and 17 Eastern Catholic eparchies led by diocesan bishops or eparchs, plus an apostolic exarchate, the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, and the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. Dioceses led by archbishops are called archdioceses. In most archdioceses and some large dioceses, one or more auxiliary bishops serve in association with the diocesan bishop. There are thirty-two Latin Church and two Eastern Catholic archbishops who serve as metropolitan archbishops of their respective Latin Church ecclesiastical provinces or Eastern Catholic metropoliae. (One archbishop — that of the Archdiocese for the Military Services — is not a metropolitan.) As of February 2012, five of these metropolitans are cardinals of the Catholic Church.

All active and retired bishops in the United States and the Territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands — diocesan, coadjutor, and auxiliary — are members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

In addition to the 195 dioceses, one exarchate, and one personal ordinariate, there are several dioceses in the nation's other four overseas dependencies. In the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the bishops in the six dioceses (one metropolitan archdiocese and five suffragan dioceses) form their own episcopal conference, the Conferencia Episcopal Puertorriqueña. The bishops in U.S. insular areas in the Pacific Ocean — the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Territory of American Samoa, and the Territory of Guam — are members of the Episcopal Conference of the Pacific.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, united states, list, catholic, united and/or states:

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Greece is a sort of American vassal; the Netherlands is the country of American bases that grow like tulip bulbs; Cuba is the main sugar plantation of the American monopolies; Turkey is prepared to kow-tow before any United States pro-consul and Canada is the boring second fiddle in the American symphony.
    Andrei Andreyevich Gromyko (1909–1989)

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You do not mean by mystery what a Catholic does. You mean an interesting uncertainty: the uncertainty ceasing interest ceases also.... But a Catholic by mystery means an incomprehensible certainty: without certainty, without formulation there is no interest;... the clearer the formulation the greater the interest.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    You may consider me presumptuous, gentlemen, but I claim to be a citizen of the United States, with all the qualifications of a voter. I can read the Constitution, I am possessed of two hundred and fifty dollars, and the last time I looked in the old family Bible I found I was over twenty-one years of age.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1816–1902)

    Since the Civil War its six states have produced fewer political ideas, as political ideas run in the Republic, than any average county in Kansas or Nebraska.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
