“Bonnie, who was ordained and consecrated in February 2020, has been involved in working against gun violence for decades, including as co-founder and co-convener of the Diocese of Chicago’s CROSSWalk initiative. She was an active participant in the Bishops United 2017 Unholy Trinity conference in Chicago, and since becoming bishop of Michigan, she has been active in responding to urban gun violence and mass shootings in her diocese.
