Wisconsin Council Of Churches Advises a Return to Physically Distanced Ministry

Earlier today the Wisconsin Council of Churches issued a statement advising churches to temporarily return to remote operations as COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations soar due to the highly-transmissible Omicron variant in Wisconsin.

I commend the recommendations of the council to all of the congregations of this diocese. We know how to take dramatic precautions to keep people safe, so please take these recommendations to heart and do what you believe is the most appropriate for your parish.

In Christ,


The Rt. Rev. Jeff Lee
Bishop Provisional of Milwaukee

Appointment of Diocesan Financial Controller

To the clergy and parishes of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee,
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Caroline Senn as Financial Controller of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee.

Caroline’s professional finance background includes Chief Financial Officer roles in medium-sized publicly-listed and private companies in the Asia Pacific Region with operations in North America and Europe. Caroline was CFO of organizations operating in the financial services and technology sectors of these markets. Prior to that, she was General Manager — Tax of Ernst & Young Sydney.

With a history of deep experience with mergers and acquisitions, transaction analysis and due diligence, and the management of the finance function of complex organizations, her skills will be useful to the diocese as we discern the nature of the optimal structure for the future of our diocese.

Caroline has dual qualifications in Music and Accounting which she studied before obtaining CPA status in Australia. Caroline is also a church musician, parish treasurer, and plays baroque recorder with the duo Vox Venti.

While she has been a member of the diocese for a number of years, please join me in welcoming Caroline to this new role on the diocesan staff.

In Christ,


The Rt. Rev. Jeff Lee
Bishop Provisional of Milwaukee
