Father Edward “Ed” McDonagh passed away on May 4th, 2023, after more than 60 years of service as a priest of Jesus Christ. Originally a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston, he came to Reno after his retirement and continued to serve as a priest despite his age and ailments. His passion, care, and sense of faith always showed through his priestly service and will help us remember him as we pray for the repose of his soul.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
A Rosary will be said for Father Ed on Monday May 8, 2023 at 7:00 PM at Immaculate Conception Church.
His funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday May 9, 2023 at 11:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Church. Bishop Daniel H. Mueggenborg will preside. The Mass will be followed by a reception for all in the parish hall.
