Bishop Paprocki Completes 22nd Marathon In Philadelphia

Springfield’s Catholic bishop is on the run again. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki completed the Philadelphia Marathon over the weekend, which is his 22nd full marathon in 22 years.

Paprocki ran to raise money for Catholic Charities Legal Services of Springfield… which provides free legal assistance to low-income individuals.

Despite cold, gusty winds, Paprocki ran the race in four-and-a-half hours, shaving almost 20 minutes off his time from last year’s Springfield Marathon.
