School News

Alumni Father Michael Weibley, O.P., returned to campus on Wednesday, August 31, to serve the University as a concelebrant of this year's Opening Day Mass for the entire University community. 

A former member of the Cavalier baseball team, Fr. Weibley graduated from Walsh in 2009 with degrees in both history and philosophy. He met the Dominican Friars while attending Walsh through the campus chaplaincy and entered the Order shortly after graduation. After the conclusion of the Opening Day Mass, Head Baseball Coach Tim Mead and the entire Cavalier baseball team presented Fr. Weibley with a special keepsake bat to honor their former teammate.

"I want nothing else in life than to bring people to Jesus Christ," said Fr. Weibley. "In giving myself over to the way of life carved out by St. Dominic, I can give myself fully to this mission and draw upon the goodness of God to lead me to eternal happiness."
