MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A full house is expected Thursday night, when former Milwaukee Catholic Archbishop Tim Dolan returns to the city.

He’ll speak to around 4,000 people at the downtown Milwaukee Theatre, during the church’s 10th annual Pallium Lecture.

Dolan was the Catholic leader in 10 southeast Wisconsin counties from 2002 through ’09, when he left to become the Archbishop of New York. While there, he was elevated to cardinal – and earlier this year, Dolan was among those who elected the new Pope Francis.

Dolan remains popular in southeast Wisconsin – as evidenced by the fact that his speech will take place in a hall 10 times larger than the 300 to 400 at previous Pallium Lectures.

Dolan started those lectures a decade ago. This year’s program will deal with the current “Year of Faith,” which encourages Catholics to re-engage with the church and celebrate their faith more deeply.
