Who We Are: An Intimate History Series

With 175 years behind us and an exciting future ahead of us, it is important to take time this year for self-reflection. Who are we? Where did we come from? Who and what made us into what we now call the Diocese of Milwaukee? To this end, the Historical Commission of the Diocese of Milwaukee, in collaboration with the Milwaukee Diocesan Archives, offers you this intimate history series. Here, you will get to know some of the people who, by working out their faith, have added to the character and identity of the diocese. You will see, up close, what makes us unique as Episcopalians and how God has led us to where we are now. As we open our hearts to where God will lead us in the coming years, it is our prayer that these stories will bring you closer to your faith, history, and identity.   

New episodes will be added regularly. If you have a story that you think the Diocese of Milwaukee should hear, don't hesitate to contact us at .
