The former St. Adalbert's property, near 16th and Minnesota avenues, was sold last week for $600,000 to Masjid Al-Huda, said the Rev. Bob Betz, the pastor of Divine Mercy Catholic Community of South Milwaukee.
Masjid Al-Huda is located at 5075 S. 43rd St. in Greenfield.
Leaders of the mosque could not be reached for comment Monday.
South Milwaukee Mayor Erik Brooks said in a blog post that Masjid Al-Huda Milwaukee plans to use the facility for worship services, five per day between sunrise and sunset, as well as religious education for primarily middle and grade school-age children.
.. For whatever reason, the City of South Milwaukee denied plan to convert church to apartments.
This is not the "Polish Cathedral" St. Adalbert's.
