To the clergy and parishioners of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee,
I write to you today to announce the retirement of the Rev. Dr. Kevin Huddleston, Canon for Finance and Administration, at the end of this year. Canon Huddleston began serving in this role several months before Bishop Miller’s retirement and his leadership during this transition has been crucial. I’m grateful for Kevin’s work on behalf of the whole diocese, especially in welcoming me to the Diocese of Milwaukee in this time of transition.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people and parishes of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee. I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to contribute to the process of the transition and transformation of our diocese. However, I have discerned that it is time for the diocese to move in a new direction regarding its structure. It is also time for me to transition to a new chapter in my ministry,” said Canon Huddleston. His retirement will be effective December 31, 2021.
I give thanks to God for Canon Huddleston’s ministry and leadership among us. I am grateful for all that he has given to the diocese; we are stronger for the gifts of his ministry. We have begun to reshape the ministry of the Finance Office. The Finance Office has been transitioning from outsourcing the accounting of the diocese to doing the accounting in-house. Caroline Senn has been overseeing this transition since she was hired in late October, and she will be the contact person for any finance-related questions. You may reach her at
Please join me in offering thanks to Canon Huddleston, for his leadership and ministry with us.
The Rt. Rev. Jeff Lee
Bishop Provisional of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee
