BALTIMORE - More than 100 people from the Archdiocese of Baltimore were in Rome to support the outgoing archbishop of Baltimore as he became a cardinal.

Cardinal Edwin O'Brien was one of 22 Catholic churchmen who received red hats Saturday.

O'Brien became archbishop of Baltimore in 2007. In August 2011 he was named grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. His successor in Baltimore has not yet been named.
