Word has lately reached us that Fr. Luigi Ligutti, College '14 and a member of the
faculty of the Des Moines Catholic College, has signified his intention of joining the
Sulpician Order. Fr. Ligutti is a talented young priest, and in their acquisition of
him, the Sulpician Fathers will rob Des Moines diocese of one of its best men.
Just as spring was beginning, J. V. Kerrigan, Acad. '13, and Miss Margaret Gassel-
ing were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at St. Mary's Church, Davenport,
Rev. Leo Kerrigan, a brother of the groom, officiating. Soon after the happy young
couple left for Chicago and St. Louis where they spent their honeymoon. Mr. Kerrigan is recording secretary of Loras Council, Knights of Columbus, and an employee
of the Bettendorf Company. We wish them much joy and happiness.
Rev. Renihan, College '87, formerly of Oxford, Iowa, was appointed pastor of St.
Mary's Church, Davenport, on the death of Rt. Rev. Msgr. Ryan last October. We
compliment the people of that parish on their privilege of securing a priest whose
ability, as well as his deep religious piety, is well known. For several years Father
Renihan was stationed at Oxford, Iowa, and there he was a power for good in the
community. The people of that town, Catholic and Protestant alike, witnessed his
departure with great regret for they deeply realized their loss.
We have but lately learned that on April 15, 1920, occurred the wedding of Dr.
J. J. O'Hearn and Miss Clara Jameson at St. Peter's Church, Stanberry, Mo. The
young couple announced that they would be at home at Red Oak, Iowa, where the
doctor is practicing, in May.
James Morrow, College '17, is at home in Davenport. For the past few years he
has been pursuing the study of medicine at the University of Minnesota and has signified his intention of returning to that institution next fall.
A short time ago the announcement of the engagement of Ex-Mayor Lee Dougherty
and Miss Regina Hannon was made public. The bride-to-be is a relative of Very
Rev. W. L. Hannon, president of St. Ambrose College.
James Butterfield, Acad. '17, after his discharge from the United States Coast
Artillery, where he served for some time, has reentered the State University of Iowa
to continue his work in the study of law.
Ambrose Burke, Acad. '13, and Wm. Kleffman, Acad. '14, are both numbered
among the students of theology at St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, Md.
A pretty May wedding was that of Thomas Kennedy, Com. '14, and Miss Marie
Finefield of Creston, Iowa. The young couple have made their home in Davenport
among their well-wishing friends.
