This month we honor Fr. Mateo Correa Magallanes one of the six Knights of Columbus Priest Martyrs who gave up his life for his people and faith.

St. Mateo Correa Magallanes


Father Mateo Correa Magallanes, who was a member of Council 2140, was arrested and taken to Durango. While in prison, he was ordered by the commanding officer on Feb. 5, 1927, to hear the confessions of his fellow prisoners. Then the commander demanded to know what they had told him. Of course, Father Correa Magallanes wouldn’t violate the seal of confession, and so, the next day, he was taken to a local cemetery and executed by the soldiers.
