Bp. Morneau celebrates 50th anniversary as a Catholic priest

ALLOUEZ - The Most Rev. Robert Morneau is a self-described “classical guitarist.”

He says that tongue-in-cheek. That’s because Morneau can play only two short tunes of no more than 30 seconds total on the rare occasion he picks up the guitar that sits in his office at Resurrection Catholic Parish.

“It’s just a spoof,” Morneau said of his musical aptitude. “I can do a few chords. It’s a pretty limited repertoire — very short.”

Fortunately for Morneau, the longtime pastor at Resurrection and the auxiliary bishop emeritus for the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay, he can take a seat in the pews at his parish and let a group of professional musicians entertain the crowd Tuesday night.

Pat Surface and the Boundary Water Boys are coming down from the upper reaches of Minnesota to play a free benefit concert in the sanctuary at Resurrection, starting at 6:30.
