Cupich Becomes Archbishop of Chicago

Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 03:49 PM

Blase Cupich has succeeded Cardinal Francis George as the Archbishop of Chicago.

In a Mass on Tuesday, the 65-year-old Cupich became archbishop of the nation's third-largest diocese at Holy Name Cathedral.

The succession process began Monday night when Cupich knocked on the cathedral door and symbolically asked to be admitted for what's called a Rite of Reception.

Cupich was named by Pope Francis in September to succeed George, who is retiring as he battles cancer.

It marks the first time that a new archbishop will assume leadership of the Chicago archdiocese while his predecessor is alive.
