It will take place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 406 E. Savidge St. in Spring Lake.

Walkowiak will celebrate the school mass, then visit classrooms, and have lunch with the teaching and administrative staff.

“We are really looking forward to the bishop’s upcoming visit and we feel so very honored to have him celebrate this special school mass with the kids here on the Lakeshore,” St. Mary’s Principal Mike Devitt said.

Walkowiak is the 12th bishop of Grand Rapids, succeeding Walter Hurley. Walkowiak was installed in a special ordination mass at Cathedral Square in Grand Rapids last June.
