Indian Summer Mass - Celebrating the first Native American Saint
by Cindy McManus

Last October, Kateri Tekakwitha went down in history as the 1st Native American Saint. Kateri Tekakwitha was one of seven people canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in an open-air ceremony held in Saint Peter’s Square in October 2012.
Archbishop Listecki will preside over the Mass along with Father Ed Cook of the Congregation of the Great Spirit.
This is a unique opportunity to celebrate, honor and learn more about Saint Kateri Tekakwitha — the exceptional person she was and the Saint she became.
