REEDSVILLE, Wis., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fr. Richard H. Klingeisen is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Lifetime Member in the Healthcare and Pastoral Care fields.
Fr. Klingeisen's professional title is Coordinator of Health Services at the Diocese of Green Bay, and Pastor at St. Mary's Clarks Mills and St. Michael Whitelaw. He has worked in the clergy since 1972 and brings expertise in support and vision of Catholic education, as well as supporting and counseling the families of the sick and dying, to his role.
As part of his job duties, Fr. Klingeisen facilitates meetings, and is a consultant for medical/ethical issues as well as end of life issues.
"We need to build a civilization of love in the midst of a culture of death," Fr. Klingeisen said. "We can do this by supporting the dying and their families spiritually through prayer and in practical ways, like a visit or a phone call. Today there are so many ways to make dying easier whether the person is at home, or in a long-term care facility, or an acute-care hospital. Working with physicians and nurses, we can show respect and love as we provide palliative (comfort) care."
Fr. Klingeisen earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy at The St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. To further his professional development, he is a member of the Catholic Medical Association as well as the Local Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, and the National Association of Catholic Chaplains.
When not working, Fr. Klingeisen enjoys working on a dairy farm with his younger brother, playing golf and reading particularly in the winter. He also volunteers his time to the St. Vincent Mission in David, Kentucky, where he serves as the Coordinator for Appalachian Home Repair program. His work with the mission involves repairing houses and overseeing volunteers.
