FROM THE PASTORíS DESK
By Fr. Terry Kerner

Plans are being formed for the weekend of October 21/22 when the parish will celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of the canonization of our Patroness, St. Kateri Tekakwitha. You are invited to be a part of the planning when we again meet on Tuesday, August 23rd at 7:15 PM.

Tentative plans for the commemoration include a special mass on October 21st, Saturday at 4:00 PM followed by a Harvest Dinner in the St. Francis Room ( parish hall). Fr. Henry Sands has already agreed to give a brief story of t. Kateri, her life and journey to sainthood. The following day Sunday, October 22nd from Noon to 3:00 PM, an Autumn outdoor lunch with ethnic foods and music will be held on the back lawn of the church.

The thought for the weekend celebration is to honor not only St. Kateri but also our own individual ethnic backgrounds. Parishioners are encouraged to explore their own family trees and discover their roots in the Faith.

Stay tuned for updates in the weeks ahead and how you can participate in all the festivities!
