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.”
