Edgewood College: Mourns the death of Bishop Morlino

Contact: Ed Taylor, Director of Strategic Communications 608-663-2333

Madison, Wis. – President Scott Flanagan and the community of Edgewood College join the Catholic community of the Diocese of Madison in expressions of sympathy and prayer at the death of Bishop Robert C. Morlino on November 24, 2018, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison.

Bishop Morlino, 71, pastoral leader of the Diocese of Madison, had recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of his appointment as the 4th Bishop of the Madison diocese.

We pray that Bishop Morlino may now experience the fullness of God’s gracious love. May the God of Compassion and Light comfort the Bishop’s friends, co-workers and priests in the diocese of Madison, and guide the diocese through this time of transition.
