A brief look at our history

A Missionary Church: AD 30-1843

A history of the early missionary period of our diocese, beginning at the time of the apostles and ending with the creation of the Diocese of Milwaukee.

A Visible Catholic Presence: 1843-1903

The earliest period of the Archdiocese under the leadership of Archbishops Martin Henni, Michael Heiss and Frederick Katzer.

A Maturing Church: 1903-1945

This period discusses the expansion of the Archdiocese in the early Twentieth Century, but also how Catholic dealt with world events such as the Depression and two world wars. It encompasses the administrations of Sebastian Messmer, Samuel Alphonsus Stritch and part of the administration of Moses Elias Kiley.

A Bold New Age: 1945-1962

The post-war baby boom and rapid suburban expansion define this era of Archdiocesan history, which includes the latter part of Kiley's term, the administration of Albert G. Meyer and a portion of the term of William E. Cousins.

A Time of Transition and Change: 1962-2018

This period discusses the most recent period of our history and covers the sweeping changes made by the Second Vatican Council through the present day. This includes the latter part of Cousins' term, the administration of Rembert G. Weakland, Timothy M. Dolan and our current Archbishop, Jerome E. Listecki.
