Bishop David Walkowiak

March 19, 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Lake Parish

On the Solemnity of St. Joseph, the foster father of our Lord, LANE welcomed Bishop David Walkowiak, the spiritual father of the Diocese of Grand Rapids. Bishop Walkowiak delivered an address on the New Evangelization, blessed the people and facilities of LANE, and stayed for a public reception. Thank you, Bishop Walkowiak!

“I recommend and endorse this academy for all Catholics (and non-Catholics) in our diocese. I believe this is an important outreach to our diocesan evangelization effort… I pray with you that it will bring about a renewed sense of the role our laity have in knowing the faith and spreading it.”

Most Reverend David J. Walkowiak, Bishop of Grand Rapids
