stpeterpalloThis is an honored and much revered tradition going back a very long time though there has been ‘minor’ changes in format of late. Nonetheless the handing out of the pallium ceremony will take place on Monday, June 29 — during the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul at St. Peter’s Basilica.

This year 46 new Metropolitan Archbishops from around the world, including Blase J. Cupich (Chicago) & John Charles Wester (Santa Fe), will get their palliums at that ceremony. It is assumed that Pope Francis will do the honors.
