Knights of Columbus help Theatine seminarians

On August 7, the Durango Knights of Columbus Council #1408 celebrated a Corporate Communion at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Cortez. 

In conjunction with the feast day of St. Cajetan, founder of the Theatine Order, the Knights presented $500 checks to each of four Theatine seminarians who are preparing to begin their novitiate this fall.  They will eventually work in the Diocese of Pueblo and Southwest Colorado.  The seminarians are Martin Ruiz, Ruben Dominguez, Daniel Gonzales and Felipe Ventura.  The seminarians now reside with Fr. Pat Valdez, pastor at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Cortez.
