With heavy hearts we share that Fr. Walter Dolan, OFM, Padua’s former president, passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at age 84. He served as Padua’s president for nine years (from 1994 to 2003) and continued his ministry there until 2006. He was also well known and very active while serving in the Diocese of Cleveland. His funeral services will be held in Wisconsin.
Padua will honor his life of Franciscan service by holding a memorial Mass at a later date. If you wish to make a donation in his honor, contributions can be made to the Padua Franciscan Endowment Fund (memo Walter L. Dolan, ofm Fund).
