KOFC TEXAS STATE CONVENTION
American Bank Convention Center – Corpus Christi
Friday-Sunday, April 26-28, 2019
Pope Francis has named the Most Reverend Edward J. Burns to serve as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas beginning December 2016.
Since 2009, Bishop Burns has served as the Bishop of Juneau, Alaska. Prior to that, the 59-year-old bishop served the Catholic Church on the national level as Executive Director of the Secretariat for Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington, D.C. from 1999 -2008. In 2008 he was named the Rector of St. Paul Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA. In January 2009, he was named the Bishop of Juneau. Prior to 1999, Bishop Burns served in parish ministry, diocesan administration and did extensive work in vocations.
Bishop Edward Burns has fulfilled his promise to the Catholic faithful in the Diocese of Dallas by releasing the list of priests with credible allegations of sexual abuse of minors from 1950 through today. In doing so, he joins the bishops of the 14 other Catholic dioceses in Texas and the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter in taking this step. The Texas bishops made the decision to release the lists of names in the context of their ongoing work to protect children from sexual abuse, and their efforts to promote healing and a restoration of trust in the Catholic Church.
The world needs Catholic men to step up and live out their faith.
The Knights of Columbus helps men to answer that call to do more, and to be more.
Our core beliefs are Charity, Unity, Fraternity & Patriotism.Roy Rabenaldt, Diocesan Deputy
