KATERI PARISH GIFT AND BOOK SHOP NEWS
Fourth of July! We hope that your festivities (in honor of
the US and our many blessings) are enjoyable and
let you know that several of the donated items that we
have received from our generous parishioners have been
sent to a Blackfoot School in Montana. Fr. Henry had
visited the school and saw how few resources they had.
Hundreds of library books from a closed Catholic School
and our items were shipped last week. Since postage is
quite expensive the Black and Indian Mission Office paid
for the shipment. Thank you!

HOTEL (1797) on Lincoln Square, centrally located for the
guided tour of the battlefields, museum and Cyclorama.
Diner at the FARNSWORTH HOUSE (1810)-one of the most
recognized inns in America—will invite us to capture a
deeper sense of the three-day battle through the eyes of
Matthew Brady and his photographs.
A short two hour drive
from Gettysburg takes us to WASHIGTON, DC and a visit to
the NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION—one of
the ten largest churches in the world. Included with the
visit will be a guided tour of the ST. JOHN PAUL SHRINE

our MARIOTT HOTEL for our three day stay we will dine at

BREW WORKS, a repurposed 1902 church replete with original
fixtures, windows and pews.
Our final day is filled
with seeing Pittsburgh from the vantage point of the
century old DUQUESNE INCLINE and cruising the convergence
of the Ohio, Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers aboard the
GATEWAY CLIPPER. A stop for lunch and boutique shopping at
Pittsburgh’s STATION SQUARE gives us respite before
beginning our drive home. The time spent together on our
return to Dearborn allows time to share stories and
anecdotes of a most memorable AMERICAN AUTUMN.
