MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee’s new archbishop urges Catholics to reject what he calls the “established secular religion which permeates our daily lives.” Jerome Listecki was installed yesterday as the 11th archbishop for a 10 county region that includes over 650,000 members. He said it’s not always easy to follow Catholic teachings but, “one must sacrifice for the truth.” The 60-year-old Listecki spent almost 5 years as the bishop in La Crosse, and was named in November to replace former Milwaukee archbishop Tim Dolan. About 1,000 people attended Listecki’s installation Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Dolan was among those in the crowd, along Cardinals Edward Egan of New York and Francis George of Chicago. Afterward, Listecki told reporters he had not decided if he would meet with the local Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests. The group criticized Listecki’s handling of priest sex abuse during his time in the La Crosse Diocese.
