The following #TBT blog post is written in memory of Reverend E. Corbett Walsh, SJ who was called home to be with God on September 24, 2015.  Father Walsh, SJ is survived by the following siblings: Bonnie Stoloski,  NC'59; Robert B., Thomas F., Inez Moore, Quentin I., and Toni Curry, NW'68. For many years Sacred Heart alums either met or interacted with Fr. Walsh, SJ as he was often asked to celebrate Mass and/or speak to alums at various Sacred Heart gatherings at the request of his sister Toni Walsh Curry, AASH past President (1981-1983).

On September 22, 2012, Father Walsh, SJ was invited to be a guest speaker at the Associated Alumnae/i of the Sacred Heart (AASH) Eastern Regional Conference hosted at The Wianno Club, Osterville, MA.  Rev. E. Corbett Walsh, SJ gave a talk entitled: "Hello Martha, Hello Mary".  Father Walsh tells those in the audience (Sacred Heart alums) of his partiality to the Gospel according to Luke.  He also tells us how his youngest sister "Anthony" aka Toni Curry, AASH past President (1981-1983) came to be named.  Toni is the current President of the Cape Cod & Islands Alumnae/i of the Sacred Heart Association and she was Co-Chair of the 40th Biennial AASH Conference hosted in Boston, April 9 - 12, 2015. Those who watch this video (twenty-five minute portion of his talk) will find Fr. Walsh an engaging, very charming, intelligent priest whose stories are both endearing and heartwarming, sprinkled with his wonderful sense of humor.  During his talk Fr. Walsh mentions that when you read Luke you often think of Father Faber (see quote below) and some of his poems. 

Rev. E. Corbett Walsh, SJ  you will be sorely missed by your extended Sacred Heart family...may you rest in eternal peace.




"There's a wideness in God's mercy
like the wideness of the sea;

there's a kindness in his justice,

which is more than liberty.

For the love of God is broader
than the measure of man's mind;
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind."
