About Us


The mission of the Office for Religious is to assist the archbishop in his ministry to religious and other consecrated persons who live and serve in the Archdiocese of Chicago. The office provides pastoral services to them as well, being a vehicle for communication and administrative support. We work to connect the diversity of charisms of consecrated life with the needs of the archdiocese. The office also actively promotes a culture of vocations in the archdiocese through the coordinator of religious vocation ministries and the activities of the Chicago Area Vocation Association (CAVA).
