Rep. Harris Meets with Archbishop Cupich at House Inauguration

Rep. Harris with Chicago Archbishop Cupich 
Representative Harris had the opportunity to meet with the new Roman Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, His Eminence Blase Cupich, at the Inauguration of the Illinois House of Representatives on January 14th.  Archbishop Cupich delivered the benediction prayer at the conclusion of the ceremony.  It is widely expected that Archbishop Cupich will be elevated to a Cardinal of the Catholic Church in the near future.

Rep. Harris is Catholic, and he attended St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights and then Georgetown University in Washington, DC.  He and the Archbishop had a brief but enjoyable conversation about the various challenges that each of them face in the year ahead.

The 99th General Assembly now begins its work for the 2015 and 2016 sessions.  Budget and fiscal matters will be the top priorities for the new General Assembly.
