Former Archbishop Weakland says Easter Mass in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE - A retired Milwaukee Archbishop came back to the cathedral he called home for many years to say Easter Mass.

Former Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland presided over one of the Sunday Masses at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist.

Auxillary Bishop Richard Sklba joined him.

Weakland retired from his position after admitting to a gay relationship that happened more than 30 years ago.

This report does NOT show Bishop Weakland. The Bishop shown is Bishop Sklba. This error needs to be corrected and does nothing to heal wounds related to the sex abuse scandal.

Well, what do you expect us to do about it? This is a matter for you to bring
to the attention of whoever reported things wrongly.

Bishop Sklba has a beard?

Yes Bishop Sklba does have a beard and in the short piece I do not see hide nor hair of Archbishop Weakland. Somebody certainly got things screwed up in their reporting!
