A centuries-old tradition was held Monday night as Chicago welcomed its next archbishop Blase Cupich.

Cupich knocked on the doors of Holy Name Cathedral with a rubber mallet. Monsignor Dan Mayall, Holy Names' pastor and rector, along with Cardinal George and the auxiliary bishops of the archdiocese opened the doors to welcome him.

Civic leaders, including Governor Pat Quinn and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, were also in attendance Monday night.

Tonight’s ceremony was a prologue for tomorrow afternoon, when Cupich is officially installed as Chicago’s ninth archbishop.
