AUBURN GRESHAM — Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, will lead a peace rally and march on Friday.

He will attend St. Sabina Church's annual end of the school year kick off event for a summer of peace. The event will begin at the church, 1210 W. 78th Pl. at 7 p.m.

In April Cupich participated in a peace walk through Englewood with more than 1,500 people. The walk kicked off on Good Friday.

The group traced the Stations of the Cross and paused along the way to read the names of lives lost to violence in Chicago since January of this year. They prayed along 68th at Stewart and at Green Street, and 63rd and Parnell Avenue.
