Thomas More Prep-Marian High School announced today its 2014 graduation May 25 will take place away from campus.

The morning Mass and afternoon commencement exercises, annually held in Al Billinger Fieldhouse, this year will be at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Hays.

The move was made because of construction in the fieldhouse to upgrade fire exits. Work has been completed for the main floor level of the fieldhouse, but construction still is ongoing for fire exits from the upper level.

Therefore, two other spring traditions still continue in the fieldhouse — the Auction for Christian Education on April 26 and the Mother's Day Mass May 11 — because the main level will accommodate people attending those events.

IHM, one of the Heartland Parishes that supports Hays Catholic Schools that includes Holy Family Elementary School, has a capacity of more than 1,000 people.
