Nuestra Conquistadora Council 16601 Santa Fe
The Knights Of Columbus Mexican Martyr Feast Day. Mass was celebrated at San Isidro
Catholic Church with GK Greg Lopez, and Nuestra Conquistadora Council 16601.
Every year on the feast of the Mexican Martyrs, we remember the Knights who gave their
lives during the 1920s and 30s persecution of Catholics in Mexico. These include six priestmartyrs who were executed for participating in Catholic movements, celebrating Mass,
offering the sacraments, and refusing to violate the seal of confession. Fathers Luis Bátis
Sáinz, José María Robles Hurtado, Mateo Correa Magallanes, Miguel de la Mora de la
Mora, Rodrigo Aguilar Alemán, and Pedro de Jesús Maldonado, were canonized by St.
John Paul II in 2000. We remember their witness of love and bravery
