Return to the Upper Room was held on June 14, 2015 to celebrate the first-year anniversary of the Archdiocesan Synod. This event included two new videos, a welcome by Bishop Hying and presentations by Archbishop Listecki and others regarding what has begun this past year and future plans for Synod implementation.
This video connecting us to Jesus’s Great Commission to the disciples and the new mission statement for the archdiocese: “Proclaim Christ and Make Disciples through the Sacramental Life of the Church.”
The powerful true life story of Joe Smith and Jackie Piano and how their conversion is related to the power of the Mass. Evangelization and the Sunday Mass is one of the five principal areas the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is focusing on related to the Synod priorities and living out the new archdiocesan mission statement.
Bishop Hying sends his greetings and wishes everyone well as we move forward in implementing the priorities of the Synod.

Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki revealed his vision for the direction of the Catholic Church in southeastern Wisconsin on Sunday, September 14, when he shared the Synodal Declaration with Catholics during the 8 a.m. Mass from the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Milwaukee.
The Declaration is based on the votes of hundreds of parish delegates who participated in the 2014 Archdiocesan Synod held this past June. It was the first Synod held in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in more than 25 years.
