July 14th is the Feast Day of one of the Church’s newest Saints; St. Kateri Tekakwitha. Click on her name here, for a short biographical video created by Fr. Martin Breski, OFM Conv., who is currently living and serving in Assisi.
This year, our friars added to the celebration of the Feast Day with a dedication of a new outdoor Shrine of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, erected at the Basilica of St. Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr, Chicopee, MA, from funds graciously given by an anonymous donor.
One of the many ministries where the friars of Our Lady of the Angels Province serve is the National St. Kateri Tekakwitha Shrine, in Fonda, NY. The shrine is a beautiful place to visit on the site of St. Kateri’s home from 1666-1677.
