In that year he became assistant pastor of St. Felix Church, Wabasha, and continued there until April 28, 1943 when he was appointed pastor of St. Patrick's West Albany, and the mission church of St. Clement's, Hammond.

He is survived by his father J. P. Frisch , Wabasha, a brother, the Rev. Alfred Frisch, Pastor of Immaculate Conception Church , Conception, and two sisters, Mrs. Leonard Walch, Altura, and Mrs. Henry Meyer, Rollingstone.
