U.S. Catholic bishops will meet Monday in Englewood to discuss several issues plaguing the Church.
On top of the agenda, a review of the clergy sex abuse scandal and the role of the church in politics.
Leaders have mixed reactions when it comes to Catholic politicians such as Presidential hopeful John Kerry, and whether they should be allowed to receive Communion.
Bishops are also torn on the issue of whether dioceses are doing enough to combat the recent molestation scandal.
The weeklong meeting is not open to the public and will likely attract many protestors.
