Two-Minute Video Highlights Diversity of Ministries and Passions in Society of Jesus

For Immediate Release

(Washington, D.C., February 4, 2016) — The Jesuits of Canada and the U.S., in collaboration with nonprofit media company Loyola Productions, recently released a dramatic and artfully-produced new video highlighting the vocation of Jesuit brothers. The video commemorates the closing of the Year of Consecrated Life, which ended on Feb. 2, 2016, and can currently be viewed at Jesuits.org.

In the video, twelve Jesuit brothers each deliver a line of the Anima Christi, a prayer especially beloved in the Society of Jesus. Each shot was filmed in a different location and conveys each brother’s own unique vocation and character. But collectively, they present a deeply moving image of the diversity and personality of the largest order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church. 

“The first thing you see is the forest, and the camera focuses on these beautiful old trees. They belong there, like the brothers belong in the Society,” said Jesuit Brother Michael Breault, director of the film. “Their feet are on the ground, you see them working with their hands … I wanted something expressionistic, emotional; something that displayed the commitment, variety of work and the passion of the Jesuits in it.”

Breault, who has won a Peabody Award and served as associate artistic director at Circle in the Square on Broadway, has an extensive background in producing, directing and writing for theater, television and film. Currently serving as the director of vocation promotion for the Jesuits, he hopes that the video helps create awareness of the vocation of Jesuit brothers. During National Vocation Promotion Month in November, Breault distributed a Vocation Promotion Toolkit, created expressly for Jesuits and lay colleagues by vocation directors and promoters.

With the toolkit and now this new video, vocation promoters are better equipped to ask the vital question, “Have you ever thought about being a Jesuit?” According to Breault, studies show that interested young men must hear the question three times before they make an inquiry. The short film is his latest effort to make that question easier for anyone to ask.

“Doing vocations work, I often hear people saying, ‘Oh, there are Jesuit brothers? I thought the Jesuits only had priests,’” said Breault. The new video aims to remedy that misconception. “Not only are there brothers, but they are the backbone of the Jesuits,” he said, referring to the integral role that brothers played in the formation of the Society. Jesuit brothers are free to fully dedicate their lives and their service to others and to God in the Ignatian tradition. “That’s why they are called ‘quintessential Jesuits’: they have devoted their lives to the mission of living the vows of the Society of Jesus and that is their sole occupation,” Breault said.

About the Society of Jesus in Canada and the United States

Founded in 1540 by Saint Ignatius Loyola, the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) is the largest order of priests and brothers in the Roman Catholic Church. Jesuit priests and brothers are involved in educational, pastoral and spiritual ministries around the world, practicing a faith that promotes justice. In Canada and the United States, there are 30 Jesuit colleges and 80 pre-secondary and secondary schools with a shared goal of developing competent, compassionate and committed leaders in the service of the Church and society. Jesuits minister in parishes and at retreat houses and serve as chaplains at prisons, hospitals, nursing homes and in the military. In Canada and the U.S., the Jesuits are represented by the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, headquartered in Washington, D.C.

It is with WJHS Basketball tradition to identify a “Team of the Decade” in order to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of members of the Men’s Basketball program over the years.  Many great players have contributed to the consistent and continued success of the Warriors, but a select few have stood out in the Warrior Basketball Program. 

At the mid-point of the 2010-2020 decade it is the appropriate time to identify those who have been selected as the members of the 2000-2010 classes “Team of the Decade.” 

The entire Walsh Jesuit High School community will honor the following Alums as members of that team. 

Members of this team who will be honored include: Bryan Beigie ’00 and Chris Dawson ’00, Alassane Kouyate, Tom Hollo, and JJ Uber ’02, Drew Hoisington ’04, Blake Chaffee, Dwayne Jackson, Riley Rindo, and Mike Shea ’05, Jon Mannarino ’07, Colin Shea ’08, along with Chris Ameen and Andrew Pavloff ’09.

We plan this recognition at the home game of the Warriors played on Saturday February 6th versus Beachwood HS – moved from the original date of February 5th for scheduling purposes.


The Varsity game is set to take place at 3 p.m. in the Dome; recognition of this TEAM will take place prior to that game.

Congratulations Warriors!

Attention Senior Art Students:

If you submitted an application/resume for consideration for the Performing & Fine Arts Booster’s Scholarship on or before 12/18/2015, and you did NOT receive email confirmation from Karen Ziton that your application was received, please send an email to Karen at karted@roadrunner.com no later than 1/8/2016.

This fall, Walsh Jesuit art students worked with the Memory Project, a nonprofit organization that invites art teachers and art students to create portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, and extreme poverty. More than 80,000 art students from around the world have participated in this project since the beginning of 2004. Fifteen Walsh Jesuit students were sent photos of 15 children from Madagascar. The art students then created a portrait of each child with their medium of choice. The finished works of art are on their way back to Madagascar to be delivered to each child. A financial contribution has also been sent to assist in the children's education.

Walsh Jesuit High School and members from the Islamic Society of Akron and Kent (ISAK) celebrated together during Walsh Jesuit’s annual Lessons and Carols Prayer Service held in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs at Walsh Jesuit High School on December 18, 2015.

For the past ten years, the mosque has welcomed Walsh Jesuit students. Walsh Jesuit students study the novel, The Kite Runner, then visit the mosque and discuss aspects of faith and prayer. Walsh Jesuit’s invitation to ISAK to attend the Lessons and Carols prayer service is a first step in deepening the relationship between the two establishments.

“The Walsh Jesuit community is committed to justice, and we are dedicated to promoting interreligious cooperation and respect,” said Karl Ertle, President of Walsh Jesuit High School. “We stand in solidarity with Muslims, and we must show action that we do not subscribe to the unjust and false rhetoric regarding Islam. The psalms of the Old Testament tell us that those who do justice will live in the presence of God. Our goal with this invitation was for everyone to feel that presence as we celebrated together today; people of different faith traditions praying and working for the peace that only God can give.”

Aalia Haque, ISAK Director of Public Relations set the tone of peace and acceptance as she addressed the Walsh Jesuit community. Echoing her thoughts, Amanda Lamadanie, President of the Kent State University Muslin Student Association spoke about the importance of Jesus for her faith and shared a poem she wrote about noticing God in the world, in each other and living a life of peace and love. Two members of the Walsh Jesuit community spoke on what presence during Christmas means to them during the service as well.

Faheem Shaikh, President of ISAK, thanked Walsh Jesuit’s leadership and teachers for their dedication to interfaith dialogue and cooperation. He reiterated ISAK’s commitment to strengthening its partnership with Walsh Jesuit by exploring ways to increase collaboration between the two institutions.

Below is a note from WJ Athletic Director, Barb Salata

Xmas Flowers

Happy Christmas and Blessed New Year to All. I just wanted to share a very heart-warming and touching story with you that exemplifies the true meaning of Christmas and the Jesuit motto of being “Men & Women for Others.” Joyce Bowers, a longtime volleyball and basketball coach at WJ, teaches in an inner-city Catholic elementary school. About two weeks ago she told me that many of the students at her school are without winter coats, shoes or clothing. This seemed like an opportunity for WJ coaches and athletes to be men and women for others. I sent a request to all head coaches in all WJ sports asking that their teams contribute coats, shoes, winter clothing, etc. to help these students. The response has been absolutely overwhelming. As I write this note, I am literally surrounded by heaps of packages filled to the brim with coats and shoes. One young man brought in two large packages. When I said to him, “wow, that’s a lot of good stuff,” he responded “well, I threw in some gloves and hats; they’re going to need these, too.” That has been my experience since I walked through the doors of Walsh Jesuit HS three years ago. Thank you parents and guardians for the fine work you have done with your young people. They are a true joy and a true pleasure. Thanks to teachers, coaches, and administrators who foster that growth and continue to nurture the giving spirit in our young people. And, finally, thank you to all our athletes and students who so graciously give of their time, talents, and treasures every day. May God Bless you all during the “most wonderful time of the year.” You are in my thoughts and prayers – Barb Salata, Athletic Director

Support the Warrior Fund and Beat St. V/M!

This year we are renewing the rivalry with St. Vincent/Mary High School to prove once again who has the best Alumni in Northeast Ohio.

In 2014 we claimed the first ever Alumni GOLD Challenge, and it is now time to defend our title!


2015GoldChallenge



This is a participation-based competition specifically for Alumni from the classes of 2000-2015 at both schools. For the dates of December 1st through the 31st, the school with the highest percentage of alumni that donate to their school’s annual fund will be the winner. Whether $5 or $500, it all counts the same for this competition. We need everyone to show your Warrior Pride!

What’s at stake?
In addition to bragging rights for being the BEST alumni community, the losing school will have to fly the winner’s flag on campus for the day of the WJHS v STVM Men’s basketball game on February 9, 2016. They will also host a tailgate for the winners at the STVM/WJHS football game in 2016.

The second annual Sock it to ‘Em ping pong tournament to will be held on Thursday, December 17th. 

Last year, we collected 208 pairs of socks to donate to the Haven of Rest, and this year we are well on our way to passing that mark. Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the tournament, but donations of socks will be accepted in the dean’s office through the day of the tournament, the 17th. These can be any size, men's or women's, adult's or children's; all will be put to good use!

The entry fee for students and faculty who would like play is two packs of socks. We hope you can donate to this worthy cause!

Walsh Jesuit senior, Mitchell (Mitch) Peterson has made a commitment to continue his academic and athletic career as a Golden Flash for Kent State University. Peterson will play for the school’s NCAA Division I basketball program.

In 2015, Peterson was awarded MVP of the North Coast League and MVP for Walsh Jesuit (2014 & 2015). He was also named Third Team All-State, and named Greater Akron Underclassman of the Year by the Greater Akron Basketball Coaches Association. His career totals at Walsh Jesuit includes 1019 points, which is the fifth on the all-time scoring list, and 93 three-pointers, which is third on the all-time list at Walsh Jesuit.

Peterson, a four-year letter winner and three-year starter, has helped the Warriors win 23 of their last 26 games. The Warrior men’s basketball team finished as Sectional champions in 2015 and have been two-time (2013 & 2015) North Coast League champions.

“We are very excited that Mitch and his family have made the decision to play basketball for Kent State University,” said John Norris, Walsh Jesuit’s head basketball coach. “At Walsh Jesuit, Mitch has been an exemplary player both on and off the court. His natural talent combined with a tremendous work ethic has allowed him to develop into one of the best basketball players in the state of Ohio. I’ve not encountered a more team-first oriented player, and a great leader for our team. I am thankful for the opportunity to see Mitch mature and develop during his time at Walsh Jesuit and look forward to one more year with him and the basketball class of 2016.”

Peterson, who plans to major in Business at Kent State University is the son of Robin and Cheryl of Richfield, Ohio.

The Walsh Jesuit community donated over 800 toys, socks, gloves, clothes, puzzles and more for their annual Do the Magis toy drive benefitting Heart 4 the City.

Magis is a Jesuit term meaning “to do more.” It inspires us to think of how God is living and working through us each day. The annual toy drive is coined Do the Magis so that the Walsh Jesuit community is reminded that we are all called to do more each day.

Heart 4 the City is an outreach center located in Goodyear Heights. They seek to create a hospitable environment where people feel respected, find hope and feel encouraged; experiencing the transforming, unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
