Kansas City Priest Will Be Chaplain for K. Of C. at Camp Cody

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 5:01 pm

Rev. John J. Martin of Kansas city, Mo. Is expected to arrive here Wednesday to act as chaplain for the Knights of Columbus at their building in camp. His presence is greatly needed, as the accommodations at the Catholic church in Deming are entirely inadequate for communicants from the city and Camp Cody. The little edifice on Sunday morning is packed at services, and many of the soldiers are obliged to stand out upon the sidewalks at the various entrance because they are unable to gain admission to the church. The collection next Sunday will be for the benefit of the Knights of Columbus, and will be added to the fund which is being raised to provide buildings at all the cantonments and National guard training camps throughout the country. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – October 22, 1917
