Bishop’s Charity Hunt

September 25 & 26, 2017 - Horseshoe "K" Ranch - Kimball, SD

Only in South Dakota will you find the Bishop ------ first, Archbishop Carlson, and now, Bishop Swain ----- trading in their traditional black for blaze orange to enjoy this great South Dakotan pastime alongside priests from our Diocese. Throughout the years, and all the hits and misses, we continue this great South Dakota tradition taking to the fields again September 25th and 26th at Horseshoe “K” Ranch.

All proceeds in 2017 will, once again, help support our Newman Center Campus Ministry.
