Catholics’ Views of U.S. Bishops
On Nov. 12-15, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will meet in Baltimore for their annual Fall General Assembly. Seven-in-ten Catholics say they are very (24%) or somewhat satisfied (46%) with the leadership of the American bishops, according to a Pew Research Center survey. The percentage of Catholics saying they are satisfied with the leadership of American bishops is significantly higher than it was a decade ago, at the height of the church’s child sex abuse scandal.
