Washington parish backs cardinal’s concerns on drafting Communion document

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Catholic parish in Washington frequented by President Joe Biden has expressed disappointment with a June vote by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to begin drafting a document on the Eucharist. Holy Trinity Parish said June 27 it backs the stance of Cardinal Wilton D. Gregory of Washington that discussions prior to the vote had weakened the voice of the church. When the bishops gathered via Zoom June 16-18 for their spring general assembly, 168 bishops voted to approve advancing a plan to draft a document to examine the “meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the church.”
