Fr Joe Reinig (1932-2014)

Former Pastor of St Francis of Assisi Parish Fr Joseph Reinig died at St Charles Hospital in Bend on Friday, October 24, 2014. He was administered the last rites the night before and passed away in the afternoon after being recently hospitalized. Fr Joe was married to Helen and together they had 9 children. When Helen died he studied for the priesthood and was ordained to the Diocese of Baker where he served as pastor in various parishes as well as Vicar General for a few years. Under Fr Joe’s pastorship, the new church on 27th Street was built and opened in August 2009. He served as Pastor from 2006 until 2010. Funeral arrangements will be announced later. Our condolence to his children, grandchildren, parishioners, friends, and fellow priests of the Baker Diocese. Eternal rest grant unto him o Lord. May he rest in peace.
