Remembering Father Ed
The Mass of Christian Burial for † Fr. Edmund Goldbach was 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 20.
Friar Edmund Goldbach, OFM Conv. lived with a quiet, peaceful certainty that God would guide him to where he was needed, where God wanted him to be.
We are grateful for †Father Ed and his joyful spirit! Enjoy this photo collection.
Friends, it is with great sadness that I must tell you that Fr. Edmund Goldbach, former pastor of Saint Bonaventure-Bloomington and friar-priest in residence, died this afternoon at Fairview-Southdale. Ed was 82. Early this morning, Ed developed abdominal pain and EMS transported him to Fairview. He died at peace while I was holding his hand.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held at Saint Bonaventure in the coming days. Ed will then be interned at our Provincialate at Mt. St. Francis, IN. I will update you with arrangements as they become available.
Please pray for Fr Ed, his family, the friars, and all those he touched with his ministry and life as a friar.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Matthew Malek, OFM Conv.
