Father Jose Maria Izquierdo, a respected teacher, administrator and priest at Belen Jesuit Preparatory School in Miami died on May 21, 1997. He dedicated nearly three decades of his life to Belen in Miami and El Colegio de Belén in Cuba.
Father Izquierdo is remembered by Belen Alumni as being one who enforced discipline with care and love and someone that was always there for his students. In May 1982, he received the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa for his contribution to the formation of so many graduates of Belen who were distinguished students at the University of Georgetown and other universities. This inspired the formation of an annual golf tournament, which honors Father Izquierdo and benefits the Financial Assistance Program.
We invite you to participate in the Fr. Izquierdo Memorial Golf Tournament, held each year in memory of our beloved Fr. Izquierdo. This event benefits the Financial Assistance Program. The tournament will be held at the Melreese Golf Course on Friday, March 1, 2019. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.
