MILWAUKEE- Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki is in the hospital Friday night after having heart surgery.
TODAY'S TMJ4 reports the archbishop had a stent put in to widen one of his arteries after having chest pains Thursday night.
A spokesperson told TODAY'S TMJ4 the 63-year old archbishop is recovering and is expected to be released sometime this weekend. The archbishop apparently drove himself to the hospital Thursday night and had the procedure on Friday.
That spokesperson says she's not aware of any previous heart issues. She says the archbishop will be fine and is thankful for everyone's prayers.
Among those wishing the archbishop well is the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).
The organization issued a release saying:
"Our thoughts are with the archbishop...And we wish him a speedy recovery."
