Bishop of Gary

Pope Francis appointed Rev. Donald J. Hying, Arts ’85, (at right, standing) as bishop of the Diocese of Gary, Ind. Previously Father Hying was an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1989 and served immediately as associate pastor at St. Anthony Parish in Menomonee Falls, Wis. Successive appointments took him to La Sagrada Familia Parroquia in the Dominican Republic; St. Peter Parish in East Troy, Wis.; and Our Lady of Good Hope Parish, St. Anthony Parish and St. Augustine Parish in Milwaukee, before becoming dean of formation and rector at St. Francis de Sales Seminary in Milwaukee. We wish Bishop Hying Godspeed in his new ministry.
