Hispanic Bishops’ Visit to the Holy Land

Auxiliary Bishop Jose Cepeda

Ten Bishops participated in the  January 18-27 Hispanic Bishops’ Pilgrimage for Peace in the Holy Land sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The theme for their visit was “Bridges, Not Walls.”  Their pilgrimage was planned to help connect the bishops’ experiences on walls along the U. S. border to the reality of walls in the Holy Land.

Bishop José Arturo Cepeda, Auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Detroit, was among the Bishops participating in the pilgrimage.  He is also scheduled to address the National Federation of Priests’ Council’s Convocation which will convene in Chicago from April 23-26, 2018.
