Archbishop Listecki to say Mass at Polish Fest

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Archbishop Jerome Listecki plans to celebrate mass at Polish Fest in Milwaukee.

He plans to be there Sunday morning at the Cultural Stage Pavilion at Henry W. Maier Festival Park grounds on the lakefront.

Julie Wolf, spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, says the archbishop celebrated mass at the majority of the lakefront festivals his first year as archbishop and has tried to celebrate mass at as many of the festivals as possible since then.

Gates will open at 9:30 a.m. and will close at 11 a.m. The readings and music will be in English and Polish.

The festival claims to the nation's largest polish festival. It runs Friday through Sunday.
