Death of Fr. J. Peter Carey, S.J, President of WJHS, 1985-1992

63d4c66c d63e 4f06 ae7a 5221df92f128Let us pray in thanksgiving for the life of our brother, Fr. J. Peter Carey, S.J. (CDT), who passed away the morning of June 29, 2015, at West Park Nursing Home in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Peter was 84 years old.  May he rest in peace.

Peter was born on July 18, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois.  He entered the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus on August 8, 1953 at Milford, Ohio.  He was ordained on June 14, 1964 at West Baden College in West Baden, Indiana, and took final vows on January 6, 1987 at Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. 

After graduating from Campion High School in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin in 1948, Peter went on to Xavier University in Cincinnati where he earned a B.A. in English.  After entering the Society and going through the normal progression of Milford to West Baden for Philosophy, he had his regency experience at the University of Detroit High School from 1959-1961, and then returned to West Baden.  Following ordination in 1969 he went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he earned a Ph. D.

Peter had a deep commitment to education.  His first major assignment in 1969 was as Asst. Dean of Students and Asst. Professor of Education at Xavier University.  Then from 1971 - 1979 he moved to the University of Albuquerque as Director of Campus Ministry, Professor of Education and Academic Dean.  He then moved to Chicago to be the Vice President and Dean of Faculty at St. Xavier College.

After tertianship in 1985 Peter was appointed President of Walsh Jesuit High School in Cuyahoga Falls where he served until 1992.  The provincial then called upon him to be the Director of the Jesuit Development Office in Cincinnati and pastoral coordinator at Milford Spiritual Center where he served for five years.  From 1997 to 2004 he was a wonderful assistant to the President at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School, where he also served as the rector of the Indianapolis Jesuits.

From 2004 until his death he had the opportunity to engage even more fully in a ministry he carried on for many years and which he loved, namely companioning men and women dealing with addictions to alcohol and drugs.  Peter was widely known as a wise and very honest man.  Jesuits and laity alike came to appreciate his frank, loveable, crusty and blunt exclamations of delight or disgust when he judged situations to be acceptable or deplorable.  One knew his mind in private and public forums.  He loved peace.  He detested war and violence.  May he rest in peace.

Suffrages: As we remember with gratitude all that God has done through his life of service to God and God's people, we are reminded of our privilege and obligation to offer Masses and prayers for his eternal repose.  All members of the Chicago-Detroit Province and those applied to it are to offer one Mass intention for Peter.  Members of the Cincinnati Jesuit Community will offer one additional Mass intention.  All will wish to remember Peter in their prayers and Masses.

 

Peter has left his body to science.  Memorial services will be held at a later date, probably in August to accommodate family members.  Details will be sent when they are finalized. 

 

Condolences:

WALSH JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUT NAMED GATORADE® OHIO BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

WALSH JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUT NAMED GATORADE® OHIO BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

CHICAGO (May 28, 2015) — In its 30th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Ryan Feltner of Walsh Jesuit High School as its 2014-15 Gatorade Ohio Baseball Player of the Year. Feltner is the second Gatorade Ohio Baseball Player of the Year to be chosen from Walsh Jesuit High School.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Feltner as Ohio’s best high school baseball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year, Feltner joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports, including Derek Jeter (1991-92, Kalamazoo HS, Mich.), Roy Halladay (1994-95, Arvada West HS, Colo.), David Price (2003-04, Blackman HS, Tenn.), Chipper Jones (1989-90, Bolles School, Fla.), Derek Lee (1992-93, El Camino HS, Calif.) and Jon Lester (2001-02, Bellarmine Prep, Wash.).

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound senior right-handed pitcher and first baseman led the Warriors to a 25-3 record and the Division I regional tournament, scheduled to begin May 28. At the time of his selection, Feltner owned a 7-1 record with a 1.28 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 43.2 innings-pitched. A 2014 First Team All-State selection, he posted a .326 batting average with a pair of home runs, 12 RBI and a .581 slugging percentage entering the postseason.

Feltner has maintained a 3.10 GPA in the classroom. He has volunteered locally on behalf of The American Cancer Society, the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and as a youth baseball coach.

“Ryan Feltner is one of the finest, brightest, most mature and sincere young men I have had the good fortune to coach,” said Walsh Jesuit High head coach Chris Kaczmar. “He is a tremendous, national-caliber talent on the mound as well as in our lineup who will be missed a great deal once he graduates. I am very proud of his deserving success.”

Feltner has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at The Ohio State University this fall.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.

Feltner joins recent Gatorade Ohio Baseball Players of the Year Cameron Varga (2013-14, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy), Andrew Benintendi (2012-13, Madeira High School), Adam Schaly (2011-12, Ashland High School), Taylore Cherry (2010–11, Butler High School), David Whitehead (2009-10, Moeller), Tyler Skulina (2008–09, Walsh Jesuit High School), Ryan Curl (2007-08, St. Francis DeSales), and Derek Dietrich (2006-07, St. Ignatius) among the state’s list of former award winners.
