Walsh hosts July 19 opening for late priest�s photo book

NORTH CANTON � Walsh University is hosting the opening of the late Father Kevin L. Fete�s photo book, �Through Father�s Eyes,� 6-9 p.m. July 19 in the Barrette Business and Community Center on campus. The book showcases the priest�s large format black-and-white photography from trips to Africa, the Holy Land, Egypt, Rome and various regions of the United States. The event is free and open to the public.

Copies of �Through Father�s Eyes� will be on sale during the opening, and there will also be a large display of Father Fete�s original black and white photography. Proceeds from the book sales will benefit the six Catholic high schools in the Youngstown Diocese, Catholic Charities of Stark County, Community Services of Stark County and the Fr. Kevin L. Fete Memorial Chapel Fund.

Father Fete served as pastor of Middlebranch Little Flower Parish from 1996 to 2006 and as administrator of Rootstown St. Peter of the Fields Parish from 2005 to 2006. His two assignments prior to Little Flower were associate pastor of St. Paul Parish, North Canton, and St. Edward Parish, Youngstown. Father Fete was an adjunct professor at Walsh University. He died of kidney cancer at the age of 48 on July 23, 2006.

PLEASE to all my friends in the blogosphere, I ask that you'll consider buying this lovely photo book. For $38.00 it's a steal! It could and should easily be $50.00! It's a powerful collection of glimpses of the world as Father Kevin saw it. Through his eyes you'll see what "caught his eye," and the photos are nothing less than simply stunning. I especially like that they're black/white. It's somehow more gripping...more haunting and more depth, than color ones would have been. THANK YOU ALL for your prayers for this endeavor to help the Youngstown diocese and Father's charities. Bless you all.
