NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — The president of Poland is making his first visit to Connecticut.

Andrzej Duda and his wife are making a stop in New Britain, which has a large Polish immigrant population. About 20,000 people of Polish decent live in the city.

Duda is scheduled to attend Mass on Sunday at the Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church. He will later speak about Polish-American relations on Sunday afternoon at Walnut Hill Park.

Anyone wishing to attend the event, which begins at 3 p.m., must preregister at special website set up for the president's appearance. Attendees are asked to arrive at least a half hour before the program begins.

Duda plans to travel from Connecticut to New York to attend next week's United Nations General Assembly.
