The Archdiocese of Milwaukee gets a new archbishop today. LaCrosse, Wisconsin Bishop Jerome Listecki takes over from Timothy Dolan, who was installed April 15 as archbishop of New York. On the ecclesial scale, Listecki appears to the right of Dolan who was to the right of retired Milwaukee Archbishop, Rembert Weakland.
The installation, according to local reports, includes a solemn Mass by invitation only. Forty bishops and cardinals plus 200 priests are expected to participate -- plus civic and ecumenical leaders.
They get to sit up front.
