Chicago Catholics asked to speak up on next archbishop

 |  NCR Today

A group of Chicago-area members of Voice of the Faithful have designed and made public two websites to enable members of the Chicago archdiocese to make known their preferences for the successor to Cardinal Francis George as Chicago's archbishop.

As the Chicago Tribune story below explains, the group put forth great efforts to gain the approval of the process by George and the papal ambassador. The story also indicates that while these church leaders did not bar the project, they were less than wholehearted in giving a stamp of approval. For example, the archdiocese barred pastors from advertising the initiative in their parish bulletins.
