The Co-ordination of Bishops’ Conferences in support of the Church in the Holy Land was formed in 1998 at the request of the Holy See. It is more simply called the Holy Land Co-ordination.  Each year they come at the invitation of the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land.

The Holy Land Co-ordination focuses on prayer, pilgrimage and advocacy with the aim of acting in solidarity with the local Christian community and sharing in the life of the Church as it experiences intense political and socio-economic pressures.

The Bishops who took part in this year’s Holy Land Co-ordination were:

Archbishop Stephen Brislin, South Africa
Bishop Pierre Burcher, Scandinavia
Bishop William Crean, Ireland
Bishop Michel Dubost, France
Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher, Canada
Archbishop Patrick Kelly, England and Wales
Bishop William Kenney, England and Wales
Bishop Declan Lang, England and Wales (chair of the Holy Land Co-ordination)
Bishop Denis Nulty, Ireland
Bishop Richard Pates, United States of America
Bishop Thomas Renz, Germany
Bishop Janusz Stepnowski, Poland
