Statement of Archbishop Edwin O’Brien on Death of Msgr. F. Dennis Tinder

“The death of Monsignor Tinder is a devastating blow to the Immaculate Conception community and an immeasurable loss for our entire Archdiocese. At all four parishes where he served, as well as in his various administrative positions, Monsignor Tinder served always with a joyful heart and with great love for the Lord and those he served. “To Father Michael Foppiano, Associate Pastor under Monsignor Tinder, and the faithful of Immaculate Conception Parish, I offer my supportive prayers and that of your sisters and brothers of the entire Archdiocese of Baltimore. “Let us give thanks to the Lord for the priestly ministry of His servant, Dennis, and pray in these days of Advent that He will welcome him into the Kingdom for which he labored so generously.”
