ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson has been nominated to head an influential committee at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

When America’s bishops meet next month in Baltimore, one of the items they’ll address is electing new officers. Archbishop Carlson has been nominated to run for chair of the Committee on Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations — currently held by Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley.

The committee assists bishops in promoting vocations in the church and addressing issues concerning the life and ministry of bishops. Also nominated for the position is Raleigh Bishop Michael Burbridge.
