Canons 8 §2 and 455, §3 - Promulgation of USCCB Particular Legislation

 
On November 13, 2012, the Latin Church members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops legitimately approved complementary legislation for the implementation of canons 8, §2 and 455, §3 of the Code of Canon Law. 

Wherefore, and in accord with the prescripts of canons 8, §2and 455, §3, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops hereby decrees that particular laws enacted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, following receipt of the recognitio of the Apostolic See, shall be considered promulgated upon their posting on the Episcopal Conference's official website, unless another form of promulgation has been prescribed in individual cases. Posting on the website shall follow as soon as possible from receipt of the recognitio. Particular laws enacted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops are effective one month after the date of promulgation, unless a shorter or longer interval of time is expressly prescribed in the decree itself. Following promulgation, the legislation may be offered to other Catholic publications to enhance its observance among the Catholic faithful. 

As President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, I hereby decree that the effective date of this decree will be January7, 2013, the Feast of St. Raymond of Penyafort. 

Given at the offices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, in the city of Washington, the District of Columbia, on the 8th day of December, in the year of our Lord 2012, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
