While the search for his successor gets underway Chicago's Francis Cardinal George is keeping up with his public schedule at home.

Saturday night he attended the annual fundraiser for Casa Jesus, a program that helps young Hispanic men interested in the priesthood.

The cardinal said Friday that he needs to focus on his health so the church has started looking for his successor.

He had already announced that he won't be making a trip to Rome later this month for the canonization of two popes.
