Chicago archdiocese denies banning Mass at traditionalist shrine
August 04, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: A spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Chicago has denied that an order from Cardinal Blase Cupich caused a halt to the celebration of Mass at a shrine operated by the traditionalist Institute of Christ the King.
“We did not ban them,” Susan Thomas told the Chicago Sun-Times. “They chose to discontinue altogether.”
Cardinal Cupich reportedly set conditions for the continued ministry of the Institute in Chicago, and the traditionalist priests apparently found those conditions unacceptable. Neither the archdiocese nor the Institute has disclosed the content of the cardinal’s order.
