In home church, archbishop dons his symbol of office from Rome

CHICAGO - After a circle of white wool was placed around his shoulders to symbolize his role as shepherd of the local church, Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich called the garment a constant reminder that he and his flock should reach out to those who are broken and suffering. Called a pallium, the garment has a rich history in the Catholic Church, and the ceremony took a different turn for Cupich and his congregation because of a decision by Pope Francis earlier this year to bestow the vestment in the archbishop's home church, not in Rome.
