RIP: 15/10/2020 - Berlin
Fr. Bernd Dangelmayer was born on 10 April 1950 at the town Salach in the district of Göppingen, Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. Once he had concluded primary school, he went to the Salvatorian Minor Seminary of Bad Wurzach. After that he decided to join the Society of the Divine Saviour, entering the novitiate which he finished by the profession of his first vows at Klosterberg in Passau on the Feast of Mater Salvatoris, 11 October 1970. He was ordained a priest at the cathedral of Passau on 27 June 1976. After his first pastoral and pedagogical training, Fr. Bernd became apostolically active in the field of education and pastoral care at Gartlberg and Bad Wurzach, both Salvatorian educational institutions. From 1996 he was fully oriented towards parish work, first in München and then in Berlin. In both places, he was very much involved in issues of reorganization as well as remodelling of buildings. His fine sense for details helped him a lot in those sometimes-complicated tasks. His dead came suddenly in spite of many efforts from medical doctors. Fr. Bernd finished his earthly pilgrimage on the memorial of St. Teresa of Avila, 15 October 2020.
