“When Cardinal Cupich joined other clergy in publicly receiving a COVID-19 vaccine Dec. 23 at St. Anthony Hospital, it marked the beginning of an archdiocesan campaign to encourage everyone to be vaccinated when they are able to.

The cardinal was joined by Father Esequiel Sanchez, rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines, and Father Don Nevins, pastor of St. Agnes of Bohemia Parish, 2651 S. Central Park Ave., and Pastor Richard Nelson, pastor of Greater Open Door Baptist Church, 1301 S. Sawyer Ave. Nevins and Nelson both serve on the board of the hospital, 2875 W. 19th St.”
