Vermont Bishop Discusses Role During Papal Visit

Catholic Diocese of Burlington
Bishop Christopher Coyne

Catholics across the Northeast are eagerly anticipating the pontiff’s visit later this month. That includes Reverend Christopher Coyne, who was appointed Bishop of the Catholic Diocese Burlington, which serves the entire state of Vermont, last  December.  He is well versed in electronic communications with a constant presence on Facebook and Twitter, and hosts a regular podcast.  Coyne served as Secretary of Communications and Principal Spokesman for the Archdiocese of Boston from 2002 until 2005.  He is the incoming chair of the Communications Committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  As a result, he is the media coordinator for Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S., as he tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has created a free app to stream live and behind the scenes events of the pope’s visit to the U.S. from September 22 through September 27th.
