Bp. David Zubik will be installed as the 11th Bishop of Green Bay at a 2 p.m. Mass Friday, Dec. 12, in St. Agnes Church, Green Bay.

The installation portion of the Mass will take place immediately after the opening procession when Abp. Gabriel Montalvo, apostolic nuncio, and Abp. Timothy Dolan of Milwaukee lead Bp. Zubik to the cathedra - the bishop's chair, a symbol of his teaching authority - and present him with his crosier.

Some 50 bishops, most of the priests serving in the diocese, 300 friends of Bp. Zubik from the Pittsburgh Diocese, and representatives of the diocese's parishes and groups will participate in the Mass. Because of space concerns, admission is by invitation only. The entire Mass will be broadcast live on WLUK-TV, channel 11, and WJOK radio (1050 AM).

On the evening of Dec. 11, there is a vespers service in St. Francis Xavier Cathedral for priests, sisters, deacons and their spouses to welcome Bp. Zubik to the diocese.   Full story ...
