Congratulations - Grātulātiō!
Archbishop Blase Cupich
Invested with the Pallium on Sunday, August 23, at Holy Name Cathedral, by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States. We of the ACP look forward to collaborating with you as our Archbishop, as we minister, by the grace of God, to the faithful of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
"In every age and every place, the most important human activity is to watch for God's." Francis Cardinal George, God in Action, 2011

The ACP extends our prayerful sympathies to his sister Margaret, to his family, and to the people of the Archdiocese of Chicago. We are grateful for his shepherding of the Church of Chicago and the Church of the United States. We appreciate the mutual respect we had, even if we didn't always see things the same way. As brother priests, we will miss his theological acumen, his personal warmth, and his laughter.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine.
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.
