We're having summertime fun while lending a hand to help others. Bishop Richard Pates threw out the first pitch at the June 5 Catholic Charities at the Iowa Cubs game. Proceeds from skyboxese, ticket sales and an auction will be used by Catholic Charities help those in need. Sister Jude Fitzpatrick was in charge of the hotdog gun for a while.
Two days later, on Saturday, June 7, 15 priests and some Iowa Knights of Columbus formed a team to compete in the Plane Pull for Special Olympics. The White Collar Crew team pulled a Boeing 757 for 15 feet. Check out Father Ray Higgins giving it his all as they pulled-off the feat in the pouring rain.
