Frank was born June 13, 1967. A native of Sioux City, he graduated from Bishop Heelen High School, then received his bachelor’s degree in 1989 at Briar Cliff College in Sioux City. Frank found his calling to serve the Lord and attended Mt. St Mary’s Seminary to become a Catholic Priest in 2000. Frank was ordained a priest in the Omaha Archdiocese and FSSP and began his work. He constantly attended additional classes and training in his professional career and his work for the Lord. He achieved many additional certifications and further degrees. Father Frank continued his work for the Lord performing counseling and psychotherapy for Our Lady of Good Counsel Apostolate for Psychotherapy & Counseling helping others to live a fuller life. He lived a life of servitude to others and will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate to have met him professionally or personally. Father Frank both wrote and spoke many languages and was very dedicated to furthering his religious and scholarly instruction, he was a very accomplished individual. One of his passions and specialties was serving the Latin Mass which will be observed at his services.
Father Frank's parents were both clinical mental health providers, so he grew up learning all about the profession from an early age. His approach to therapy as a man of faith and a member of the clergy is an integrative one that deliberately unites the psychological, theological and philosophical perspectives that his unique educational and service path provided.
Father Frank is survived by his father, Joe Parrinello of Sioux City; his sister and brother-in law, Gina & Paul Rosenbaum of North Sioux City, South Dakota; his four nieces Tasha Rosenbaum and her husband Kevin Lotero, Katherine Rosenbaum and her significant other Logan Whitead, Alyssa Rosenbaum and her husband Edward Kroll and Hailey Rosenbaum; and his Great Nieces, Madeline Young and Kai Lotero. He was preceded in death by his mother Carole Parrinello of Sioux City.
