Walsh University Celebrates Founding Religious Order

GraduationWalsh University in North Canton, Ohio, is celebrating its founding order with "Founders' Week," a week full of events including Mass celebrated by Bishop George Murry of the Youngstown Diocese, the University announced.

The school was founded by the Brothers of Christian Instruction in 1960 and named for the bishop of the Youngstown Diocese at the time, Bishop Emmet Walsh.

On Sunday, November 17, 2013, Bishop Murry celebrated Mass in the university's Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chapel in honor of the legacy of the Brothers of Christian Instruction.

Art professor Diane Belfiglio created a new piece of art titled, "The Art of Faith," in honor of the Brothers.  She said, "At Walsh University, our acts of faith enrich not only our own lives, but also the lives of those around us.  Acts of faith are both our mission and our way of life.  This is the concept behind, 'The Art of Faith.'  It's an art project by, and for, the entire Walsh community."

Other Founders' Week events include: a clothing drive for local homeless men; a concert with Catholic performing artist Tony Melendez; several social opportunities for the campus community; and other events celebrating the founders of the school.

Walsh University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
