The nation’s Roman Catholic bishops have chosen the former Bishop of the Sioux City Diocese as their new top leader.
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston was elected Tuesday as president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Among his duties will be guiding the bishops’ relationship with President-elect Donald Trump.
The vote occurred at the bishops’ annual Baltimore meeting.
DiNardo succeeds Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, who is completing his three-year term.
