Fr. Pat Wash has left just over $111,000 in his estate plans to Notre Dame High School.

Wash, a former Notre Dame student, was ordained to the Priesthood on May 18, 1968 at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Wheeling, West Virginia.

He attended West Virginia University and gained his Masters in Counseling from Marshall. He was a Licensed Professional Counselor and worked at United Summit Center as an addiction therapist.

Wash retired from the Priesthood at the age of 73 and continued as a supply Pastor when needed.

Advancement Director, Ian McAra said, “We are very appreciative of Fr. Pat. These kind of gifts can alter the course of an institution in terms of finances.”

Fr. Pat passed away on October 29, 2020 at his home in the North View section of Clarksburg after an extended illness. He was a member of St. James Catholic Church.
