Milwaukee archbishop to give 'biker blessing' at Harley-Davidson museum

.- The Archdiocese of Milwaukee recently announced that Archbishop Jerome Listecki will give a special blessing to motorcycle riders on May 30. The prelate expressed delight in the opportunity, saying, “I want them, and all people of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, to be safe this summer and always, whether they are riding motorcycles or not.”

The “biker blessing” will take place at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. According to the event spokeswoman, Gillian Lester-George, after the museum staff invited him, Archbishop Listecki “was more than happy to sign on for the event.”

Commenting on the upcoming blessing, the archbishop said, “In the spirit of St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, I am happy to bless motorcycle enthusiasts. I want them, and all people of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, to be safe this summer and always, whether they are riding motorcycles or not.”

Lester-George noted that both the Harley-Davidson Museum as well as the archdiocese invite everyone to “join Archbishop Listecki for a blessing to kick-off the summer season.”
