Most Reverend Moses Elias Kiley, (1876-1853) was the Archbishop of The Archdiocese of Milwaukee from 1940-1953. Kiley was born on Nov. 13, 1876, in Margaree, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He was ordained a priest on June 10, 1911, in Rome. Kiley’s studies for priesthood in Rome left him with a strong sense of central authority, which he brought to Milwaukee. The diocese celebrated its centennial under Kiley in 1943. Due to the centennial celebration, he was charged with restoring the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, which had been gutted by a major fire in 1935. Kiley rebuilt the St. Aemillian orphanage, which had also suffered major fire damage in the 1930s. Additionally, he renovated Saint Francis Seminary, and converted Pio Nono High School into Saint Francis Minor Seminary. Kiley died on April 15, 1953, in Milwaukee.
