WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland is going out of its way to make sure that fans and players will be able to worship during next month’s Euro 2012 football championships.
Poland is predominantly Catholic, but on Thursday clerics from Jewish, Muslim, Protestant and other faiths also took part in the dedication of a multidenominational chapel at Warsaw’s new National Stadium, where the tournament will kick off June 8. Similar chapels will be available for teams at the stadiums in Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan, too.
To make sure fans can find a place of worship for their faiths, a Website guide includes that information: www.polishguide2012.pl .
The Rev. Edward Plen said Friday that some parishes have been asked to offer foreign-language services and to invite foreigners to join them watching football games on TV.
