Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET
At our September meeting, the Council decided to continue to participate in sponsoring a 2 seminarian to assist them financially and emotionally in their studies. As the strong right arm of the church, the Knights of Columbus are committed to providing moral, financial and spiritual support to future priests and religious at all stages of their formation. Council 680 chose to support a 3rd year theology student and a 1st year theology student both with ties to the state of Maine. In September, our Council Chancellor contacted our chosen students to inform them of our desire to support them in their studies. The Council presented them with Council checks in the amount of 500 dollars each with their Christmas card. Members were also
asked to sent them emails, cards of support, and financial assistance. Several members sent them personal Christmas card along with words of encouragement and monetary help. The Council Chancellor frequently communicates with them by email and reports back to the Council on their correspondence.
