Letter to the Episcopal Church Regarding Statute of Limitations Suspension for Clergy Sexual Misconduct

On December 12, 2018, Presiding Bishop Curry and President of the House of Deputies Jennings sent out a letter to the Episcopal Church regarding a suspension of the statute of limitations for clergy sexual misconduct.

As a result of Resolution D034, from January 1, 2019, until December 31, 2021, those who wish to bring a case of sexual misconduct against a member of the clergy will be able to do so, regardless of how long ago the alleged misconduct occurred. Allegations of misconduct can be made to the intake officer in the diocese where the alleged misconduct occurred, or, if the allegation is against a bishop, to the Office of Pastoral Development

For more information, please read the letter from Presiding Bishop Curry and President Jennings.

The contact information for the Intake Officers for the Diocese of Milwaukee can be found here.

St. Andrew's, Kenosha to Close

After 103 years, we have reached the end for St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Kenosha. This is a bittersweet time for all of us. But as we close St. Andrew's, we look forward with hope for the future of the Episcopal Church in Kenosha County.

Our last church worship service (Service of Celebration and Closing) will be held at St. Andrews on Sunday, January 6, 2019.

The service will start at 4 pm and a dinner will follow at the church immediately after the service.

The Bishop of Milwaukee, the Rt. Rev. Steven Miller, will celebrate the mass with the Very Rev. Matthew Buterbaugh of St. Matthew's, Kenosha assisting.

We welcome all in the diocese to attend. So that we can get a count for the dinner, please RSVP to Pat Johnson
