THE OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF CHICAGO. This local church is pastored by Cardinal Blase J. Cupich.
The Archdiocese of Chicago, the third largest archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States, offers excellent Catholic school education through one of the largest U.S. private school systems – the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools. Our school system leads the nation in receiving the most Blue Ribbon Awards of Excellence in Education.
Among the archdiocesan organizations is Catholic Charities, the region's largest nonprofit social service agency assisting 1 million people in need in Cook and Lake Counties every year.
Over the decades, our local church has introduced groundbreaking efforts such as Pastoral Migratoria, a parish-based, immigrant-to-immigrant ministry that is expanding nationally. The program aims to empower immigrants in participating in their communities through service, leadership formation and action, while promoting justice.
As part of Pope Francis’ vision of the mission of the Church, Cardinal Cupich launched a violence prevention initiative to increase the capacity and reach of current programs that address the root causes of violence in Chicago and to identify and actively seek collaboration with like-purposed organizations.
