JANUARY 10, 2018 – To celebrate the start of National Migration Week (January 7-13), Chicago’s Cardinal Blase Cupich celebrated a special multicultural Mass at the city’s Holy Name Cathedral.
The packed Mass was standing-room only, and began with a procession of people representing nearly 50 nations, with many in traditional garb. More than two dozen priests helped to celebrate the Mass which featured prayers in seven languages.
The Archdiocese’s Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity reported that their immigrant ministry “Pastoral Migratoria” was now active in roughly 50 parishes. The Archdiocese is also “working with other dioceses to start their own Pastoral Migratoria, with the Diocese of Stockton, California, and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, scheduled to start their ministries this spring.”
