Members of the God Squad, a team of volunteers from Chicago-area parishes, set up the Nativity scene in Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago on Nov. 29. After the crèche was set up, Archbishop Cupich blessed the scene. This recreation of the scene of the birth of Jesus has been the sole religious expression of Christmas on a government plaza in downtown Chicago for 30 years.
