Archbishop Naumann is elected to succeed Cardinal Dolan as Chair of the USCCB Pro-Life Committee: https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/us-bishops-elect-archbishop-naumann-as-pro-life-committee-chair-90492 All sorts of tea leaves being read on this election, but the net result is the continuation of strong leadership on the Committee.
