Approximately 1,500 Catholics will witness first-hand Bp. David Zubik become the 11th Bishop of the Green Bay Diocese at the Mass of Installation at 2 p.m. Dec. 12 in St. Agnes Church, Green Bay. A reception will follow at the Radisson Hotel.

Others will be able to watch the Mass live on WLUK-TV (Fox 11) or listen on WJOK radio (1050 AM). Sr. Ann Rehrauer, president of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross in Bay Settlement, along with Fox 11 personalities will guide viewers through the symbolic and ancient rituals as they unfold. The Mass is expected to last until 4 p.m.

Priests, deacons and their wives, parish directors and men and women members of religious communities will gather to welcome him to the diocese the night before at a Vespers Service (evening prayers) in St. Francis Xavier Cathedral on Dec. 11.

Both the Vespers and Mass of Installation are by invitation only.   Full story ...
