BALTIMORE — The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops chose Archbishop J. Peter Sartain of Seattle as its new secretary-elect and Bishop Richard Pates of Des Moines, Iowa, as chairman of its Committee on International Justice and Peace.
The USCCB elections were among several held Nov. 14, the first day of the USCCB fall general assembly in Baltimore.
Archbishop Sartain, who will become USCCB secretary in November 2012 and serve for three years, was elected on a 136-102 vote over Bishop Robert Cunningham of Syracuse, N.Y. As secretary, he also will chair the USCCB Committee on Priorities and Plans.
Bishop Pates was selected over Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice, Fla., by a vote of 122-114.
The election was needed because Archbishop Edwin O'Brien was recently appointed pro-grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, a Rome-based position, and is now apostolic administrator of the Baltimore Archdiocese. He is no longer eligible to succeed Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, N.Y., as chairman of the international policy committee, as he was elected to do in November 2010.
The USCCB membership also elected new chairmen-elect for five committees. Each will take office at the November 2012 meeting. They are:
— Bishop John Wester of Salt Lake City, Committee on Communications, over Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi of Mobile, Ala., 129-108.
— Bishop Daniel Flores of Brownsville, Texas, Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church, over Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Antonio, 151-85.
— Archbishop John Nienstedt of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Committee on Doctrine, over Bishop Robert McManus of Worcester, Mass., 126-111.
— Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of Cincinnati, Committee on National Collections, over Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn, N.Y., 137-96.
— Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston, Committee on Pro-Life Activities, over Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit, 149-84.
Also up for election were two posts on the board of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, known as CLINIC, and four spots on the board of Catholic Relief Services.
Bishops Joseph Pepe of Las Vegas and Anthony Taylor of Little Rock were elected to the CLINIC board.
New members of the CRS board are Archbishops George Lucas of Omaha, Neb., and Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City; Bishop Flores; and Auxiliary Bishop Martin Holley of Washington.
In addition to Bishop Pates, five chairmen were to take over committees at the close of the Nov. 14-16 USCCB meeting, as a result of elections the year before.
They were Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the U.S. Archdiocese for the Military Services, Committee on Canonical Affairs and Church Governance; Bishop Joseph P. McFadden of Harrisburg, Pa., Committee on Catholic Education; Auxiliary Bishop Denis Madden of Baltimore, Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs; Bishop David Ricken of Green Bay, Wis., Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis; and Bishop Daniel Conlon of Joliet, Ill., Committee on Child and Youth Protection.
