Hying Sweating At Swearing-In

7/22/11 – Milwaukee’s new Catholic auxiliary bishop says God wants him to sweat from the very beginning. That was Donald Hying’s take on the massive heat wave, when he was sworn-in Wednesday as the Number-two official in Milwaukee’s 10-county archdiocese, which includes Dodge County. The ceremony took place in the air-conditioned Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist. Over 700 bishops, priests, and others attended the installation. The 47-year-old Hying had been a seminary rector in the the Milwaukee archdiocese since 2007. His predecessor, Richard Sklba, helped celebrate yesterday’s mass along with Archbishop Jerome Listecki and former Milwaukee Archbishop Tim Dolan. Sklba retired last year, and Pope Benedict named Hying to replace him.
