Twenty-six years ago, St. Lawrence Catholic Church celebrated its first Polka Mass. Since then, the annual event has become a favorite tradition for many in the area, combining worship, food, games and music - and attracting more than 600 people to the little church near Rush Lake.


The tradition continues this year on Sunday, Aug. 5, with a Polka Mass starting at 10:30 a.m. under the pine trees at the outdoor chapel. Activities will continue throughout the day.
