Catholic bishops themselves constitute the membership of the Conference and are served by a staff of approximately 315 lay people, priests, deacons, and religious located at the Conference headquarters in Washington, DC. This webpage is a valuable tool to explain current and historic positions of the Catholic Church in the United States.
