Birthday Bash & Farewell Celebration for Bishop Hying

Birthday Bash & Farewell Celebration for Bishop Hying

Join us for an evening of fun for the whole family as we celebrate Bishop Hying’s 56thbirthday, say farewell and raise money for the Mercy Fund established through the Catholic Foundation to provide funding for projects that embody spiritual and corporal works of mercy throughout our Diocese. This year, the Catholic Foundation will once again be honoring the Mercy Fund’s current grant recipients during the game. All are welcome to join Bishop Hying at a special Mass at the ball park at 5:00 pm, otherwise, gates open at 6 pm. All schools have been invited to participate. In addition to walking on the field, the grade school with the highest % of students in attendance (compared to total enrollment) will win a pizza party!
