Deacon David Boren

Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery serves Catholics from around the Diocese of Austin. Read what Deacon David Boren from St. Vincent de Paul parish in Austin had to say about his experience.

"Our experiences with Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery began when we were approached for the first time with the concept of a Catholic cemetery with perpetual care. A friend in our parish at the time was a representative of OLOTR and asked if we would just listen about this new cemetery in Georgetown. The story was a compelling one and we discerned the purchase of our final resting places at this truly Catholic cemetery. Since that time, I have been privileged to lead the internment portion of several Rites of Christian Burial, and assist at a good number more. While each one has been special for me as a deacon, each time I am on the grounds of OLOTR I experience a great sense of peace and calmness. The atmosphere that has been created is unique and the staff is pastorally professional in every aspect. We pray that others will have the chance to experience the beauty and serenity of such a spirit-filled environment and consider joining other Catholics in choosing this Cemetery for their place of rest. "
