Statement From the Archdiocese of Chicago Regarding Rev. Marco A. Mercado

CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—October 5, 2015. On October 1, 2015, Archbishop Blase J. Cupich removed Rev. Marco A. Mercado, Rector of the Shrine of our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines from ministry because of Fr. Mercado’s inappropriate relationship with an adult man.  Archbishop Cupich has withdrawn Fr. Mercado’s faculties, his authority to minister.  Rev. Adan Sandoval Duron has been appointed Interim Administrator and Fr. Mercado will reside away from the Shrine, effective immediately.

The Archdiocese is committed to ensuring those serving our parishioners are fit for ministry. Archbishop Cupich knows this news will be difficult to hear and he offers his assurance of prayers and solidarity with the community at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We will provide updates on the situation as they become available.
