The Welcome Liturgy will begin in the church at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 15th and church doors open at 5:45. St. Anne Pastor, Father Berniee Pietrzak, recommends arriving by 6:15, at the latest, to find available seating.

“Our Faith Community was chosen as the parish site for this Welcome Liturgy because we have the church with the largest seating capacity (1500) in Vicariate I,” Pietrzak says. “Each parish will have a pew reserved for their representatives that evening. There will also be 35 priests from Vicariate 1 concelebrating the Welcome Liturgy. This means that 35 pews will be reserved even before the liturgy begins.”

In November of 2014, Archbishop Cupich was installed as the ninth Archbishop of Chicago, succeeding Cardinal Francis George. One of nine children, Archbishop Cupich was born on March 19, 1949, in Omaha, Nebraska, where he was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Omaha in 1975. He served as pastor of two parishes in Omaha before being installed as Bishop of Rapid City, South Dakota, in 1998, followed by his installation as Bishop of Spokane, Washington, in 2010.
