The Vatican on Tuesday announced three auxiliary bishops have been appointed to the Archdiocese of Chicago, replacing two who resigned their positions.

Pope Francis tapped the Revs. Mark Bartosic, Robert Casey and Ronald Hicks as bishops-elect until their episcopal ordination at Holy Name Cathedral, the seat of the Catholic Church in the Chicago area, on Sept. 17, according to the Archdiocese of Chicago.

In 2015, Hicks was appointed vicar general of the archdiocese by Cardinal Blase Cupich, Chicago’s archbishop; since then he has been celebrating Mass at a different parish each weekend. For the last two years, Bartosic has served as pastor of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary church in Little Village and has been director of the Kolbe House Jail Ministry. Casey serves on the placement board of the archdiocese, which involves assigning priests to parishes.
