The Stadium at Shields Field

Bishop Dwenger High School has received a generous financial gift which is donor-designated to build a stadium around Shields Field, located on the school’s campus. The gift represents more than one third of the funding needed to complete the project. We are very enthusiastic about this project as it will create a variety of opportunities for our students and our community, now and for future generations.

We invite you to join us in this exciting project, and we welcome the opportunity to personally speak with you about the stadium at Shields Field.
