Among their other duties, many auxiliary bishops of Chicago have served as episcopal vicars of the archdiocese’s vicariates. 

A vicariate is a geographical region of the archdiocese. Each vicar acts as a sort of day-to-day administrator on the archbishop’s behalf and report back to him about the needs and concerns of the people in the vicariates. 

Bishop Mark Bartosic will be episcopal vicar for Vicariate II. Bishop Robert Casey will be episcopal vicar for Vicariate III. Bishop Ronald Hicks will remain in his post as vicar general.Bishop  Alberto Rojas will move from Vicariate III to Vicariate I.
