How Will "Renew My Church" Change Chicago-Area Parishes?

Archbishop Cupich on WTTW's Chicago Tonight program.The Archdiocese of Chicago is almost ready to move into the next phase of the "Renew My Church" initiative. Archdiocesan planners have anaylyzed  surveys, consulted parish leaders, and looked at options for helping our parishes cope with a future with fewer priests, changing demographics, and the need for parishes to pool resources and work together to be better evangelizers of the Good News. Archbishop Cupich elaborated on his view of the whole initiative in an interview with WTTW's Chicago Tonight host Phil Ponce.
