U.S. bishops' new vocations head

Father W. Shawn McKnight of Wichita, Kan., just landed a very important job — head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Secretariat for Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations.

“Father McKnight brings extraordinary background to the position,” Msgr. David Malloy, USCCB general secretary, said in a Sept. 21 statement. “In addition to parish work, his experience includes years in seminary formation, education of deacons, college chaplaincy and membership on his diocesan presbyteral council.”

Father McKnight will take over the position in July.
