Francis Cardinal George has begun his experimental treatment for cancer, but today it's back to work.
The cardinal plans to meet with the music director of a suburban church who was fired for declaring his intention to marry his gay partner.
Colin Collette was released from Holy Family Church in Inverness. He is hoping the cardinal can use his influence to get him his job back.
The Chicago Archdiocese calls the Cardinal's visit with Collette "a pastoral meeting."
George has said before that the Vatican and the archdiocese don't get directly involved in hiring and firing decisions at local churches.
