TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Funeral arrangements have been made for Father Gerald Robinson, who died last week at a Columbus hospice unit.

Father Robinson was a Toledo priest convicted of the 1980 murder of Sister Margaret Ann Pahl, a nun he worked with at Mercy Hospital in downtown Toledo. He died early in the morning on Friday, July 4.

Robinson died a priest, and the Catholic Diocese of Toledo announced he would receive the same funeral as all other diocesan priests.

"He was a sinner, as are we all. He was a baptized member of the body of Christ, and he was, and remains an ordained priest of the Roman Catholic Church. This is the context in which his funeral will take place," said Diocesan Administrator Father Charles Ritter.

Visitation for Father Robinson will be held Thursday, July 10, from 2-8 p.m. at W.K. Sujkowski & Son Funeral Home on Airport Highway, and from 10-10:45 a.m. on Friday, July 11 at St. Hyacinth Catholic Church on Parkside and Victory Avenue. A funeral mass will be held Friday at 11 a.m. at the church.

The committal will be at Calvary Cemetery.
