You are Invited — Regional Masses of Thanksgiving!

All are invited to a series of regional Masses of Thanksgiving in gratitude to God for the bond between Archbishop Listecki  — our shepherd for the past 14 years — and his flock, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, as he prepares for retirement. As requested by canon law, Archbishop Listecki submitted his retirement on his 75th birthday March 12 to Pope Francis, but he will remain archbishop until the pope accepts his retirement.

Stay for a reception immediately following each Mass to thank Archbishop Listecki for his leadership!
