Walk For Life Honored at St. Patrick Seminary Gala!

It's a twofer! The Walk for Life West Coast, represented by co-chairs Dolores Meehan and Eva Muntean (who were the apples of Fr. Malloy's eye) is/are being honored at St. Patrick Seminary's 'Four Pillars' Gala on September 9. California Catholic Daily has the story:

Prudence requires courage
St. Patrick’s Seminary honors Walk for Life founders
On September 9, St. Patrick’s Seminary will hold its annual Four Pillars Gala. The event is the sole yearly fundraiser for the seminary, which serves the Archdiocese of San Francisco, most of the other dioceses of California, as well as the dioceses of Honolulu, Reno, and Spokane.  The seminary is currently forming 64 men for the priesthood, and this year’s class includes seminarians from as far away as Korea. 
Each year at the gala the seminary honors a person or organization who has contributed greatly to the mission of the Church. Past honorees include the Knights of Columbus and the Serra Club. This year, the seminary honors San Francisco’s Walk for Life West Coast, the second largest pro-life event in the country. Accepting the honor for the Walk will be two of the Walk’s co-founders, who are also the Walk’s co-chairs, Dolores Meehan and Eva Muntean.

Seminarians at the 2015 Walk for Life West Coast
Eva Muntean told CalCatholic: “I’m beyond elated…this is a dream come true. If you had told me in 2005 that we would be honored by the Seminary, a place where the young men who are the future of the Church are being formed, I would not have believed it. And you know, one of our great joys at the Walk every year is the presence of so many seminarians. It’s great for them and it’s great for all the lay people, especially the young, to see them there, standing for the little defenseless lives. This is more than I ever hoped for.”
