About The Presenter: Bishop Robert Morneau
Most Reverend Robert Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Green Bay, has been a popular retreat director and lecturer throughout the United States for many years. Ordained to the priesthood on May 28, 1966, Fr. Morneau became an Auxiliary Bishop on February 22, 1979. He was one of the first American priests to be named a bishop by Pope John Paul II. Through the years, he has served the Diocese of Green Bay as a member of the College of Consultors and Diocesan Finance Council, as the Vicar for Priests and the Vicar General and presently as pastor of Resurrection Parish in Allouez. He is not only an avid runner and golfer, but also a reader of poetry and prose, and peppers his homilies and talks with references to his favorite literary treasures. A poet and author, he has written several books. Many of his essays appear in U.S. Catholic, St. Anthony Messenger, AMERICA, AND Emmanuel. Bishop Morneau describes his ministry: “Priesthood has been a gift and a responsibility for me. As a gift, what a grace to be a part of so many people’s faith life. As a responsibility, it has brought a bundle of joys and sorrows, that is, a participation in the life of Jesus.” Bishop Morneau 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.
