NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Riehle Playing Field, newly named after University of Notre Dame National Monogram Club executive director and athletic department chaplain Rev. James Riehle, C.S.C., will be dedicated at approximately 1:45 p.m. EST Friday.
The dedication will take place on the intramural field, located directly east of Stepan Center, immediately following the Note Dame Football Kickoff Luncheon in the Joyce Center. Original announcement of the field naming came back in April.
Among those involved with the dedication program will be current Monogram Club president Jim Carroll, University director of athletics Kevin White and other University and athletics department officials.
A 1949 Notre Dame graduate, Riehle is in his 26trh year as athletic department chaplain. He has been the Monogram Club’s executive director since 1978. He previously served the University as dean of students (1967-73), chairman of the board of the University Club (1971-77), and director of energy conservation (1973-93). He was rector of Pangborn Hall through 1985.
In June, Riehle received the Moose Krause Award from the Monogram Club. That honor goes annually to a member who has displayed outstanding dedication to the spirit and ideals of Notre Dame while demonstrating a responsibility and concern for the community.
