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.
