“Retirement home for elderly priests in the works" from the Catholic Sun, 2010.

Plans are in the works to build a home for elderly priests who have faithfully served the Diocese of Phoenix for years...A location for the priests’ retirement home has not yet been selected, but Bishop Olmsted has decided to name it Regina Cleri — Queen of the Clergy.

"The name expresses our recognition of the Blessed Mother’s power as both mother and intercessor for priests in heaven,” said Fr. David Sanfilippo, … a member of the priests’-retirement-home committee. “It expresses priests’ own devotion and love for Our Lady and recognizes that she keeps her sons under the mantel of her care."
