Who Is In The Garden?

A Handmaid News, Priests Garden

We thought that, similar to sharing images of our priests chalkboard in our refectory highlighting priests to pray for each week, we might share from time to time, not just a photo of our Mary Mother of Priests Garden, but a little about some of the priests names fixed there among the Stations of the Cross on our hilltop home. 

So who is in the Garden? What was the first name plate drilled into the white panels in 2019?

Name Number One: Father Gerald M. C. Fitzgerald, s.P.

Naturally, our Founder had to be the first name on the white panels. He was inspired by the Holy Spirit to found two institutes dedicated to the sanctification of all priests. The first little red plate was his.
