MILWAUKEE – The Most Rev. Jerome Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee, will be the featured guest of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Monday, Feb. 23, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Archbishop Listecki has seen a number of changes since his installment five years ago. Appointed by Pope Benedict, Listecki now serves under a new pontiff, Pope Francis. Popes John XXIII and John Paul II are now saints. The largest Catholic university in the area, Marquette, is now run by a layperson, Dr. Michael R. Lovell. The Milwaukee archdiocese has released thousands of documents detailing its previous handling of the clergy sex-abuse scandal. It has also filed for bankruptcy.

But what about the future? What do the next 15-20 years look like for the archdiocese? Join us for a discussion with the archbishop about his faith, his tenure in Milwaukee and the road going forward.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
