St. Agatha Parish
On Sunday, Cupich will lead mass at St. Agatha Parish, a predominantly black parish in the Lawndale neighborhood. That’s the church where former priest Daniel McCormack sexually abused several boys.
The three men all alleged that the Catholic Bishop of Chicago, the Archdiocese of Chicago and Cardinal Francis George were all negligent in the hiring and retention of former priest Daniel McCormack.
Two more young men filed suit Thursday claiming that Daniel McCormack sexually abused them when he served as pastor at St. Agatha parish in the Lawndale community on the West Side.
