The Archdiocese of Philadelphia website looks a little different this morning:
And now another nice little surprise: I’m currently aboard a train bound for Philadelphia. The presser is scheduled for 10AM EST. I’ll be tweeting live updates here, and probably blog post directly after the press conference concludes. You can watch it online (live) here.
Following the news conference, Cardinal Rigali will be the main celebrant and homilist for a Mass concelebrated by Archbishop Chaput as well as Auxiliary Bishops and priests of the Archdiocese. All are invited to attend.
Looks like today is shaping up to be very full!
For those of you looking to know Abp. Chaput better, Thomas Pringle has a helpful post. If you want to read my thoughts from yesterday on what an Abp. Chaput appointment would mean (and now we will all find out), click here. Finally, this is a must-read: Abp. Chaput’s exclusive interview with John Allen, released this morning so as not to violate the embargo.
…oh, and for those wondering — it’s pronounced SHA-PEW (as in the pew of a church).
