Eleven New Knights of Columbus

This evening eleven of our seminarians were initiated as third degree members of the Knights of Columbus.  Among the Knights who generously conferred the degrees were the Honorable State Deputy, Peter K. Healy and one of Saint John's most loyal friends, the Honorable Former State Deputy, Thomas M. Ledbetter.  

In congratulating them, Monsignor Moroney urged the seminarians to remember that the Knights of Columbus Councils are made up of "some of the most charitable 'men of the Church' you will ever meet."  He also recalled the challenge of Pope Benedict XVI to the Knights to "discover ever new ways to serve as a leaven of the Gospel in the world and a force for the renewal of the Church in holiness and apostolic zeal."

Saint John's Seminary is generously supported by the Knights of Columbus through donations, scholarships for seminarians, seminarian aid, and most of all, through the prayerful support of Knights throughout New England.  Saint John's is honored by the friendship of the Knights of Columbus and inspired by their example!
