Archbishop calls for a “New Pentecost” at 2014 Synod

September 13, 2014

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

After three months of study, prayer and reflection, I will promulgate my Synodal Declaration from the pulpit at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Milwaukee, during the 8 a.m. Mass this Sunday, September 14.

I share it with you today for your review.

A print version of the Synodal Declaration will also be produced this fall.

Over the coming months, you’ll receive more information on the plans to implement these priorities. In the meantime, I ask that you keep the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and all those involved in the Synod process, in your prayers.

In Christ,

Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki
Archbishop of Milwaukee
