On November 24, 2014, Pope Francis appointed Bishop Donald J. Hying as the fourth bishop of Gary and simultaneously accepted the resignation of Bishop Dale J. Melczek as Gary’s third bishop. Bishop Melczek reached the age limit as specified by Church law in 2013.
The sixth child, all boys born to Albert and Catherine Hying, Bishop Hying, a native of West Allis, Wisconsin, was ordained to the priesthood for the archdiocese of Milwaukee in 1989, where he served in numerous parishes, as well as La Sagrada Familia, the archdiocese’s parish in the Dominican Republic. Additionally, he served as dean of formation at Saint Francis de Sales Seminary where he was later appointed rector, serving there until Pope Benedict XVI named him auxiliary bishop of Milwaukee in 2011.

Fluent in Spanish, Bishop Hying’s missionary experience will bring a strong sense of understanding and compassion to many of the faithful in the Diocese of Gary.
