  1. Fr. Schloemer was one of the kindest priests in the Archdiocese I have met. I remember him walking the pastor’s dog and Fr. Schloemer saying, “He’s got issues!”

    May he rejoice in the presence of the Eternal High Priest!

  2. Fr. Schloemer married us on Saturday, May 6, 1978 at Assumption of the BVM in O’Fallon, Mo. He was a very kind and loving priest. May he rest in peace.

  3. We worked together for almost 10 years, and it was a privilege to work with him and for him at MPB. Rest in peace my dear friend.

  4. Fr. Schloemer gave me my first communion and he married my husband and I in 2002. He was a kind man of God. Rest in peace in the arms of your savior.

  5. Father Bernie was one of the kindest priests I’ve known. He was a gentle soul and cared deeply for those who were suffering. He was also witty and would tell it like it is if you knew him well. He was a dear friend of my parents so I’ve known him since I was young. Fr. Bernie married my husband and I and buried several family members. He was my boss for a time as well. I pray that he now enjoys a much deserved eternal peace with Our Lord.

  6. Rest in peace Father Bernie. He presided over our wedding and our children’s baptisms. I appreciated the way he never “judged” anyone and was accepting all people. My best memory was his excitement to try our very unusual ethnic Chinese food at our rehearsal dinner and he tried everything with joy.
