Two new auxiliaries for Chicago

 

Pope Benedict has named Polish-born Father Andrew P. Wypych and Mexican-born Father Alberto Rojas as new auxiliary bishops for the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Cardinal Francis George, OMI announced the appointments yesterday, an archdiocesan announcement says.

Fr. Wypych, pastor of St. Francis Borgia Parish in Chicago, will serve as Cardinal George’s vicar for Vicariate V of the Archdiocese and as liaison to Polish Catholics; Fr. Rojas, pastor of Good Shepherd Parish in Chicago, will serve as the Cardinal’s vicar for Vicariate III of the Archdiocese and as liaison to Hispanic Catholics.

Bishop-elect Wypych, 55, was ordained as a priest of the Archdiocese of Krakow in Poland in 1979. He came to Chicago in 1983 and was incardinated in this Archdiocese several years later. Prior to becoming pastor of St. Francis Borgia Parish in 2002, Fr. Wypych served in a number of parishes in the Archdiocese, including Five Holy Martyrs, St. Giles, St. Ladislaus and St. Pancratius.

Bishop-elect Rojas, 46, studied for the priesthood in his native city, Aguascalientes, Mexico, and in the Archdiocese of Chicago, where he was ordained a priest in 1997. Fr. Rojas served at St. Gregory the Great and St. Ita prior to being named pastor of Good Shepherd Parish in 2010.

Both priests have served as pastors and associate pastors. Bishop-elect Wypych has also served as a Dean, and Bishop-elect Rojas was a member of the seminary formation faculty at University of Saint Mary of the Lake / Mundelein Seminary.
