.- The Archdiocese of Chicago has launched a new mission that it hopes will bring about an evangelical revival among Catholics.
Mission Chicago is an ongoing effort initiated by Cardinal George to encourage evangelization in the archdiocese. The cardinal is acting on his strong belief that the essential mission of the Church is proclaiming Jesus Christ and inviting people to share in his life and Church.
One aspect of Mission Chicago is a series by Fr. Robert Barron. He will preach a mission in select parishes throughout the archdiocese, starting Feb. 23, which is meant to inspire active Catholics and invite those who have not been active in their faith to a fuller participation in the life of the Church. The missions will culminate at Holy Name Cathedral April 9.
