Seminarian benefits from KC scholarships
the Inland Register
(From the Nov. 11, 2004 edition of the Inland Register)
The St. Peter Parish Knights of Columbus recently announced two significant scholarships given to one of the Council’s members, seminarian Matthew J. Nicks.
Nicks and his family are members of St. Peter Parish. He is now studying theology at North American College, Rome.
For the second year in a row, Nicks has been awarded the $5,000 Bishop V. Daily Vocations Scholarship from the Supreme Office of the Knights of Columbus in New Haven Connecticut. In addition, the St. Peter Parish Council has awarded him an additional $500 scholarship.
The St. Peter KCs made the commit to provide “meaningful financial and/or moral support” to a seminarian or postulant, according to Jim Mansfield, the Council’s Grand Knight.
