MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WRN) - The Archdiocese of Milwaukee announced Saturday that Jerome Listecki has been named Archbishop by the Vatican. Listecki succeeds Timothy Dolan, who was named Archbishop of New York earlier this year. The 60-year-old Listecki has served as bishop of the Diocese of La Crosse since March of 2005. Questions have been raised by members of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP. SNAP says it has questions about Listecki’s record in dealing with abuse by clergy in La Crosse. SNAP’s Midwest Director Peter Isely says Listecki has refused to meet with the group in the past and has encouraged victims in La Crosse to take their allegations directly to him, not the police.
