Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American Saint in North America and is a major icon within the Native American Catholic Community. Attached please find a flyer describing the festivities going on here in Tucson during the weekend of the Canonization.
I encourage Councils, Assemblies and brother knights to send donations to help with this historic celebration. The Knights of Columbus has been very supportive of Native American Catholic Communities major events in the past. The Canonization of Saint Kateri is especially significant not only to the Native American Catholic Communities but also to Native American Knights of Columbus members across North America so our support with donations from all our Councils and Assemblies will help in showing how supportive we can be throughout Arizona.
Donations can be sent to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Parish, 507 W. 29th St., Tucson, AZ 85713, and write Kateri Canonization Celebration in the memo area.
Thank you for your support.
