Vroom, vroom for St. Luke’s Center
Archbishop Thomas Wenski leads dozens of bikers on annual fundraising ride
DORAL | Bikers led by Archbishop Thomas Wenski roared through the streets of South Florida Feb. 4 — Super Bowl Sunday — but not to celebrate the big game.
The annual Archbishop’s Motorcycle Ride raises funds for St. Luke’s Center, a drug and alcohol-abuse treatment facility operated by Catholic Charities.
Dozens of bikers joined the archbishop for 8:30 a.m. Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doral, then followed him on the 31-mile ride to Peterson’s Harley Davidson in northwest Miami-Dade County, where they enjoyed a BBQ lunch and some fun and games.
After Mass and before setting out, the archbishop also went around blessing the bikers’ rides. (Click here to read the archbishop’s homily.)
The annual event is coordinated by the Archdiocese of Miami’s Development Office.
