Easter to you all! Thanks to all our customers and
volunteers who have supported the shop with their
purchases and time. The Gift Shop will reopen the weekend

including First communions, graduations, weddings and
Mother’s Day. Stop by to browse our selection of cards,
sacramental and gifts.
Since we now have a
Nicholas Black Elk Prayer Circle at our parish, the shop
has stocked several biographies of this holy Lakota
Medicine Man and Catholic Catechist. He led a fascinating
life spanning an important era of our nation’s history.
Nicholas Black Elk had a petition to advance St. Kateri’s
canonization and is now on the road to sainthood himself!
