Dear Brothers,

With regret we communicate the death of Msgr. Redovino Rizzardo, which occurred on November 6.

He was 77 years old. Msgr. Redovino, Scalabrinian missionary, was bishop of the Diocese of Dourados, MS (Brazil) from 2001 to 2015, when he gave up due to reasons of age.
Msgr. Redovino for many years suffered from a cancer that brought him to death. The funeral will be in the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Dourados.

Let us pray the Lord for him that He may welcome him into his kingdom.

Fr. Ermenegildo Baggio
