Archbishop blesses Renovated Priests’ Cemetery at Sacred Heart Church, Richmond Road



Bangalore, January 08, 202: Archbishop Most Rev. Dr Peter Machado blessed the newly renovated Archdiocesan priests’ cemetery and niches situated in the premises of Sacred Heart Church, Richmond Road.

Archbishop Peter Machado, along with Most Rev. Dr Bernard Moras, Archbishop Emeritus of Bangalore, and the Monsignori blessed the cemetery and prayed for the departed priests of the Archdiocese of Bangalore.


“This is a sacred place for the whole Archdiocese. In all our sacramental celebrations, we remember the priests who were presiding. This is the place of history and heritage for us. Our priests who served our Archdiocese for the past 100 years are lying here… They have sacrificed for us. Therefore it is important and fitting to pray for them and remember them today for all that they have done.” said Archbishop Machado as he gratefully acknowledged the fruits of their tireless and selfless labour.

The niches are installed to the adjacent wall of the cemetery with each departed priest’s name and details inscribed on them. The blessing and dedication of the renovated Archdiocesan priests’ cemetery and niches was telecasted live by the Archdiocesan Communication Center (ACC) on the Bangalore Archdiocesan YouTube Channel.
