From the Diocese of Des Moines Facebook page:

It is with great sadness that we share that Monsignor Frank Chiodo passed away overnight on 11/23/2023.

Msgr. Chiodo was ordained in 1976 by Bishop Dingman and retired in May of 2022 after 46 years of service. In that time he served at a variety of parishes including Christ the King (Des Moines), St. Brendan (Leon), Sacred Heart (Chariton), Basilica of St. John (Des Moines), St. Thomas More Church (Omaha), Holy Trinity (Des Moines), and most recently St. Anthony’s (Des Moines).

He also authored three books, had a radio program on Iowa Catholic Radio which was telecast weekly on a local cable channel, and produced a series of CDs featuring a variety of homilies and reflections.

We are grateful to the Lord for his time and service on this earth and prayer for his heavenly rest in our eternal home.

+Eternal rest grant unto Monsignor Chiodo, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
