The No One Buried Alone ministry was founded to take care of people who do not have any family or friends at the time of their death, and provide them with a dignified burial and resting place. It is associated with members from Palm Beach County and Our Lady Queen of Peace in Palm Beach. Through the support, donations and care of community members, these individuals have a family and home for their eternal resting.
