Bishop Robert F. Morneau was ordained as Auxiliary Bishop for the diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin on Feb. 22, 1979.. Through the years, he has served the Diocese as a member of the College of Consultors and the Diocesan Finance Council; as the Vicar for Priests and the Vicar General; and as pastor of Resurrection Parish in Allouez. He is a reader of poetry and prose, and peppers his homilies and talks with references to his favorite literary treasures. A poet and author himself, he has written several books, and many of his essays appear in such periodicals as U.S. Catholic, St. Anthony Messenger, AMERICA and Emmanuel. In addition to writing, he gives retreats and lectures throughout the United States to lay groups as well as bishops and cardinals. He is considered the U.S. Catholic Church’s premier resource on stewardship, an expression of discipleship through which we gratefully receive God’s gifts, tenderly care for them, generously share them, and humbly return them to God.
