The Palma Community Mourns the Loss of Bishop Garcia
With heavy hearts we mourn the loss of Most Reverend Richard J. Garcia, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Monterey. He was a kind man and a good friend of Palma School. He will be missed. — O God, who chose your servant, Bishop Garcia, from among your Priests, and endowed him with pontifical dignity in the apostolic priesthood, grant, we pray, that he may also be admitted to their company for ever.
