Welcome from the Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki
Eleventh Archbishop of Milwaukee
I am very happy to welcome you to this extension of the ministry of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries. Since 1857, the Archdiocese has owned and operated cemeteries on behalf of the parishes. Almost half a million faithful have been placed in eight cemeteries since that year.
I am proud of the ministry and service provided by these cemeteries. I became archbishop on January 4, 2010. As I have come to know more about the cemeteries, I have grown in appreciation of their importance for the living and the dead.
I encourage you to visit the cemeteries to honor the dead. Contact the cemetery of your choice to initiate your own arrangements for burial. All the options and costs will be presented so you can make an informed and confident decision.
May God bless us all our days until we see our God face-to-face. Peace!
+ Jerome E. Listecki
