Bishop Nicholas WalshNicolas Eugene Walsh (October 20, 1916—April 21, 1997)


Nicolas Walsh was born in Burnsville, Minnesota, to Patrick J. and Julia (née McDermott) Walsh. He completed his philosophical and theological studies at St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul, and earned a Master of Education degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He was ordained to the priesthood on June 6, 1942.

As a priest of the Diocese of Boise, Idaho, Walsh served chancellor of the diocese, diocesan director of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, and superintendent of diocesan schools. In 1958 he became the founding editor of the Idaho Catholic Register. Prior to his appointment to Yakima, he was pastor of St. Mary's Church in Caldwell.

On September 5, 1974, Walsh was appointed the third Bishop of Yakima, Washington, by Pope Paul VI. He received his episcopal consecration on the following October 28 from Bishop Sylvester William Treinen, with Archbishops James Joseph Byrne and Alberto Uribe Urdaneta serving as co-consecrators. He remained in Yakima for two years.

On August 10, 1976, he resigned as Bishop of Yakima for health reasons; he was named auxiliary bishop of Seattle and titular bishop of Volsinium on the same date. He retired on September 6, 1983.

Walsh died at age 80.
