Bishop Muench released from hospital after being overcome by heat during celebratory mass
BATON ROUGE - Bishop Robert Muench has been released from the hospital after he suffered a heat-related incident at a mass Sunday afternoon.
A statement from the Diocese of Baton Rouge says Muench was "overcome by heat at a reception after celebrating his Golden Jubilee Mass at Saint Joseph Cathedral."
Muench was transported to Our Lady of the Lake as a precautionary measure and kept there overnight. He was released Monday morning and returned to his residence. A spokesperson says his 'weak spell' was due to dehydration.
The bishop will resume his regular activities and duties starting Tuesday.
