Statement from Mayor Emanuel on the Installation of Archbishop Cupich

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“On behalf of Chicagoans of all faiths, we thank Cardinal George for his service to our city. We are excited to write a new chapter by welcoming Archbishop Cupich to Chicago. Though we are a city of neighborhoods, our goal is to build a single future as one Chicago, and to do that we will rely on his values and voice – not just on Sundays, but every day. I am confident the entire city joins me in wishing him well as he charts his own course, one that will be guided by a passion for his new city, compassion for others, a sense of renewal, and a spirit of inclusion.“
