Letter from The Four Marks to the laity & clergy of @archchicago

A little fun.

Cupich Paul Kalchik letter

September 21 23, 2018

Dear Parishioners and Staff laymen and clergy of Resurrection Parish the Archdiocese of Chicago,

For some weeks now, I have become increasingly concerned about a number of issues at Resurrection Parish in the Archdiocese. It has become clear to me that Fr. Kalchik Blase “Cardinal” Cupich must take time away from the parish archdiocese to receive pastoral support so his needs can be assessed. Effectively immediately, I have appointed Msgr. James Kaczorowski, Pastor of Queen of Angels Parish and Dean, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano as Administrator of Resurrection Parish archbishop of Chicago, effective tonight today.

I do not take this step lightly. Rather, I act out of concern for Fr Kalchikā€™s “Cardinal” Cupich’s welfare and that of the people of Resurrection Parish the archdiocese. I have a responsibility to be supportive of our priests when they have difficulties, but I also have a duty to ensure that those who serve our faithful are fully able to minister to them in the way the Church expects.

Bishop Mark Bartosic, your Episcopal Vicar, Athanasius Schneider will monitor the situation along with the Administrator Canons Regular of St John Cantius to ensure that you as parishioners receive appropriate pastoral care.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Cardinal Blase J. Cupich The Four Marks
Archbishop of Somewhere in Chicago
