Bishop Soto will discuss the importance of youth gatherings and the National Catholic Youth Conference on This is the Day (the interview was pre-recorded in Washington, DC).

On November 29, 2008, Bishop Jaime Soto became the head of the diocese upon the retirement of the Most Reverend Bishop William K. Weigand.

Also, on This is the Day will be Bishop Gregory Mansour. In January 2004, Pope John Paul II named Gregory Mansour Bishop of the Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn.

Bishop Mansour currently serves on three committees of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: Pro Life, Catechesis, and Catholic-Oriental Orthodox Dialogue.
