Bishop Malesic Talks With Students About the Year of Mercy
On March 31, Seton Hill’s Campus Ministry hosted a Coffee Talk with Greensburg Bishop Edward Malesic. Bishop Malesic spoke with students about the significance of the Year of Mercy, and how mercy can be a part of the daily life of each person.
"He used humor and stories to make the material accessible and understandable for the crowd, and did it so thoroughly that when he asked for questions, I literally didn't have any.”
“He spoke of reaching out in the spirit of love and mercy to those around us and building a community of love on campus,” said Campus Ministry Director Sr. Maureen O’Brien.
The Bishop, who spent considerable time meeting with attendees both before and after his talk, was a big hit with Seton Hill students.
“I honestly thought that he was a very compelling speaker that had a lot of good things to say. I really enjoyed it!”

“I was so happy to see that we had quite a large crowd at the coffee talk. I really appreciated the diversity of the audience, too! After letting his lecture sit with me for a while, I really took a lot away from his wise words and stories.”
- Rebecca Buza, psychology major
“I had a nice time listening to the Bishop speak last night. He seems like a kind, wise, down to earth man.”
- Zach Herman, biology/osteopathic medicine major
“I really enjoyed Bishop Malesic's presentation. I think he handled topics of forgiveness and mercy very well from a genuinely Catholic standpoint. He used humor and stories to make the material accessible and understandable for the crowd, and did it so thoroughly that when he asked for questions, I literally didn't have any.”
