KERA interviews Bishop Edward J. Burns

In an interview with KERA radio, Bishop Edward Burns discusses the move from Juneau to Dallas, the new immigration task force in the diocese, and the protection of children, youth and vulnerable adults in the Catholic church.

Edward Burns led his first Easter mass as the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas last weekend. He moved from Juneau, Alaska, a few months back, and he’s already making a mark. He started a task force on immigration and is leading a national effort to prevent  sexual abuse in the church.

Burns says he actually missed the phone call from the Vatican's ambassador. "I just thought it was another wrong number," he said.
