FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Paying tribute to the late Bishop John D'Arcy, an exhibit is now on display in the Cathedral Museum at the Archbishop Noll Center.

Different artifacts from Bishop D'Arcy's life are featured in the display, like his crozier, which is a symbol of his authority in the church and also a ring, three pectoral crosses and of course his beloved baseball artifacts.

"We usually have exhibits of all the bishops, or at least certain parts of the bishops' history," Father Phillip Widmann, director of the Cathedral Museum, said. "And since he is a part of history now, we're at the six month anniversary, so we decided to put out a display of various artifacts belonging to him."

The exhibit will be open to the public Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.

The First D'Arcy Dash Run and Walk is being held Sunday at Foster Park. Organizers say the late Bishop did so much for the community and he lived in the Foster Park area so it was the perfect place to hold the event.

All proceeds will go to the Bishop D'Arcy Scholarship Fund for Catholic Education. You can register until 1:30 p.m. on Sunday and the Walk and Run kick off at 2 p.m.
