Milwaukee- On Thursday at noon, Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago was in Milwaukee to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the ordination of Father Gilbert Arciszewski at St. Adalbert Catholic Church, 1923 W. Becher St. St Adalbert was constructed in 1930, which was founded in 1908 and was one of several Polish American parishes in the city in the 1930’s. Father Arciszewski’s father was one of the builders of St. Adalbert Church. Now retired, Father Arciszewski was a then pastor at St. Casimir parish, in 1981.
Today, St. Adalbert has become the largest Latino congregation of Mexican descent in the Milwaukee Archdiocese through Father Eleazar Perez Rodriguez recruitment efforts to attract parishioners through religious outreach programs and activities in the Latino community.
Auxiliary Bishop Perry is one of the candidates being considered to replace Archbishop Timothy Dolan in Milwaukee. On Wednesday, Dolan officially became the New York Archbishop replacing Cardinal Edward Egan, who retire as head of New York City's Roman Catholic Archdiocese.
On Bishop Perry's right: Father Arciszewski celebrated his 50th Anniversary of his ordination.
