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