3. Over the weekend, the USCCB Blog passed its one millionth page view milestone. Series, such as last week’s popular JFK reflection entries, have helped propel the USCCB into a daily must-read blog, along with “Five Things To Remember.” The blog continues to grow its subscriber list and has seen steady readership growth during the last year thanks to interaction through social media. Thanks to all who have made this possible.
