Mark Kemmeter Named Archdiocesan Coordinator of Parish Mission

Back on October 24, 2008 the Archdiocese of Milwaukee announded that he replaces Doreen Welte.
As Coordinator of Parish Mission, Kemmeter will concentrate on the development of parish leadership through on-going formation as well as encourage pastoral renewal through cluster, district and archdiocesan planning.

Perhaps that's "renewal" meaning Catholic Removal as "urban renewal" tended to be "Negro Removal".
He will also serve as liaison to the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council.

The Archdiocesan Pastoral Council is primarily made up of a representative selected by the parish councils in each of the Archdiocese's sixteen districts.
For the past seven years, Kemmeter has served as Coordinator of Staff in the Diocese of New Ulm, Minnesota.

As of July, there's been a New Bishop of New Ulm, MN - Bp. Elect John Levoir. Whether related to that or not, Mr. Kemmeter is coming home.
His resume also includes 22 years in parish work in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in a variety of capacities including director of religious education, business manager and pastoral associate.

    Ahhhh another Weakland ally coming home to roost....22 years in parish work in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.........That alone should disqualify him!

  2. Yah.

    Let's re-do that resume:

    22 Years Serving R. Weakland, OSB, disgraced former Archbishop of Milwaukee.

    7 years serving the most rebellious Bishop in all of Minnesota.

    Return to Milwaukee...

    $100 million, please!
