MILWAUKEE – Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki appointed Lydia LoCoco as the first Director of Community Relations for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. She will join the archdiocesan staff at the Mary Mother of the Church Pastoral Center on July 8, 2019.
“I believe we can increase the Church’s presence in our community by building stronger relationships with government and civic community leaders, institutions, businesses and organizations,” Archbishop Listecki said. ”The Catholic Church has an important and rightful role as a leader in the community– both in Metro Milwaukee and other areas of our archdiocese.”
LoCoco’s newly-appointed role will be responsible for creating and maintaining positive relationships with community leaders, representing the archdiocese in civic community settings and developing a sphere of influence that reflects positively on the Church’s mission and ministry.
LoCoco has her Doctor of Ministry degree from Mundelein Seminary/University of St. Mary of the Lake. She has worked most recently as Managing Director of Administration and Ministry at St. Jerome Parish, Oconomowoc; as Vice President for Mission Integration at St. Anthony School, Milwaukee; and as Director of the Nazareth Project in the Marriage and Family Office of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
