We were truly blessed to have Fr. Dan as our Pastor. He cared for his “human” flock as well as God’s critters whom he blessed each year. His smile will not be forgotten and I know that he and his beautiful voice are now a part of the Heavenly Choir praising God for eternity.

I am stunned and saddened to see the announcement of condolence for Fr. Redmond on our church website. We were blessed to have Fr. Redmond for 5-years at St. Albert the Great Church. I will always remember him as a kind and loving Priest. May he rest in the arms of our Savior and most Holy Mother, and may his family find peace in knowing how much he was loved by so many.

The angels must’ve sung and danced when they were sent to bring Rev. Daniel P. Redmond home. Now, in the very awesome presence of God, he is experiencing his much deserved rewards. Trusting in the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, a new leader will be found to fill the great void Fr. Dan left behind.

Condolence from Michael & Katie Mathe on June 14th, 2021 9:17 am

Our deepest sympathies to the family of Fr. Dan and to all those who know and loved him. My wife Katie and I moved to Florida two years ago and have been out of touch. We are so deeply saddened by the loss of Fr. Dan. It was an honor to serve him on past parish councils and to sit with him selling raffle tickets at the annual Parish Festival. Fr. Redmond was truly a devoted priest, friend and the hardest worker, doing God’s work, that I will ever know. May the Angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs greet you at your arrival and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem.
