Bishop Robert McElroy has announced that Kathleen Domingo will be the new executive director of the California Catholic Conference. Currently Senior Director of the Office of Life, Justice and Peace in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Mrs. Domingo will be the first woman executive director in the history of the Conference. “From immigration to legislative advocacy to advising other arch/diocesan leaders around the United States, Mrs. Domingo has provided outstanding leadership and creativity in her role in the archdiocese,” said Bishop McElroy of San Diego and president of the California Catholic Conference of Bishops. “Many will know Kathleen from her work building OneLifeLA, first held in 2015, into the third largest pro-life event in the nation” said Bishop McElroy. “But her contributions to building up life, justice and peace in California include foster care renewal, mental health outreach and end-of-life ministry. In her work and advocacy Kathleen has shown remarkable creativity and skill in developing and managing ministries for the vulnerable and the voiceless in our society, and we are delighted that her talents and faith will now be brought to the state level.” Mrs. Domingo has a Master’s in Theology, magna cum laude, from the Lateran University, John Paul II Institute in Washington, DC, and a BS in Biology from the University of San Francisco, among other certificates.
