In remembrance

We mourn the passing of Rev. Patrick E. Walsh, S.J., who walked God’s earth for 89 years; was a Jesuit for 61 years and a priest for 52 years; and ministered to many students and alumni while serving as associate pastor at Church of the Gesu. Father Walsh knew students filling the pews on Sunday afternoons were taking a welcome break from studies, so he made the time count with homilies that were meaningful  and some say intentionally short. In announcing his passing, his Jesuit brother affectionately honored Father Walsh: “He had, in his Irish way, a way with words. He made people laugh. He touched their hearts.” Father Walsh died in February.
