Re: June Meeting Agenda

I am happy to provide you with the preliminary agenda and schedule for the June meeting in Los Angeles. Since this schedule is not being provided to the media at this time, we ask that it be treated as confidential.

HONK HONK!

All of Thursday will be in public session. All of Friday, except for the first 30 minures, and all of Saturday will be closed to the public and spent in Executive Session, regional meetings and study/reflection.

(THERE'S MORE MANURE THAN ANYONE CAN STAND)

Since all the time is fully committed, should it become necessary to add anything to the agenda, it would probably be necessary to extend beyond the scheduled adjournment at 10:30 am on Saturday.

What is any conference without the immortal words of Fr. Wilson:

Watching the bishops’ conference in action is like viewing the film of a train wreck over and over again. With bright-colored clowns hanging out the train windows, waving and blowing kisses. One only wishes one had a tomato.
