PRIEST-CRISIS CONFAB (Rome to review anti-molest rules)

Vatican sources said yesterday that top U.S. Catholic bishops will come to the Vatican this weekend for talks centered on the child-sex scandals that have rocked the church.  The president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Wilton Gregory, and his deputy, William Skylstad, are expected to stay for a week as part of a regular, twice-yearly visit to the Vatican by the U.S. church hierarchy.
