We received word today that Father John J. Walsh MM passed away on Friday, September 23, 2016 at Saint Theresa's on the Maryknoll Campus. John was a strong supporter of the Affiliate movement from the early days of its existence. Agnes Walsh and Ginny McEvoy, both of the Long Island Chapter of which he was a member for many years, sent a few words of remembrance:
"Our beloved Father John Walsh, MM passed away this afternoon (Friday). He was a devoted member of the Long Island Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter for many years and was a resource for us since the beginning of the Affiliates. Fr. John spoke at the first MAC at Maryknoll, Ossining, and, with his expansive vision, was always supportive of Affiliates. He became a member of the LI Chapter when we met at the Father's house in Hempstead, NY and remained part of our group until illness necessitated his transfer to St. Theresa's."
Please remember this good man in your thoughts and prayers.
