RIP Msgr. Ressler

A great priest has gone home

Monsignor Wayne A. Ressler, 80 of Dubuque, died Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque of heart related issues.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 am on Monday, August 26 at St. Joseph the Worker Parish celebrated by Archbishop Michael Jackels and priests of the Archdiocese of Dubuque. A Vigil Service will be held at the church on Sunday, August 25 at 6:45 pm. Visitation will be on Sunday from 4-6:45 pm at the church. Burial at Calvary Cemetery in Cascade following a luncheon at the Moracco Supper Club. Hoffmann Schneider and Kitchen Funeral Home, 3860 Asbury Road is assisting the family.

Monsignor Ressler is survived by his sister, Mary Ellen Ressler and his brother, Fr. Mark Ressler, along with three nephews, three great nephews and three great nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, Art and Florence Ressler.

Monsignor Ressler was born in Cascade, Iowa on July 9, 1939. He graduated from St. Martin High School, Loras College and Fordham University (MA in Religious Education). He did his seminary training in Rome, Italy where he was ordained a priest on December 16, 1964 in St. Peter Basilica.

He was a big reason I had stayed a Catholic as long as I did. I would have left years earlier if not for him. He was such a great guy. Very understanding and kind. Very patient with altar servers (such as myself).

Please pray for Msgr. Ressler.
