Priest Memorial

In response to Pope Benedict XVI's declaration of the "Year for Priests," starting June 19, 2009 where he encouraged all to pray for priests, the Church's spiritual leaders and administers of the sacraments; Bishop Gerald M. Barbarito said, "(The Year for Priests) will be a wonderful opportunity for all of us to reflect upon the unique and irreplaceable identity of the priest. It will afford us the opportunity to show our appreciation for our priests and to pray for them."

In this spirit of appreciation for our priests, Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery, the only Palm Beach Diocesan Cemetery, has embarked on a fund raising campaign with the goal of bringing to fruition a long desired and much needed, beautification project for the Priest burial section of the cemetery. We believe that Pope Benedict's designation of the Year of the Priest, and Bishop Barbarito's endorsement, are great signs that our long-held desire to enhance the cemetery's memorial to our deceased priests of the diocese is due for fulfillment. Because this portion of the cemetery is supported solely by donations, the budgetary obstacles surrounding the beautification project have, so far, proven insurmountable. We believe that the generosity and concern of our parishes and the faithful of our diocese will rise to meet the challenge of this worthy cause. We are excited about this opportunity to bring well deserved honor to the Good Shepherds of the Diocese of Palm Beach.
