80th Anniversary Gala

St. Kateri National Shrine and Historic Site

One of our most beautiful ministry locations is our National Shrine (in Fonda, NY) dedicated to Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the Lily of the Mohawks. On Wednesday, October 17, 2018 the Saint Kateri National Shrine and Historic Site celebrated its 80th Anniversary with a Gala in honor of the Most Reverend Edward B. Scharfenberger, D.D. – Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany. The Gala took place at River Stone Manor, the historic estate on the banks of the Mohawk River. From 6-9:00 p.m. around 90 guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, desserts, cash bar, a silent auction and drawings. Among those in attendance were renowned Algonquin member Terry Steele, several of our friars {including the Shrine Chaplain – Fr. Timothy Lyons, OFM Conv.& our Vicar Provincial – Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv (at right)} as well as many lay-staff, volunteers and pilgrims of the Shrine. If you would like to help our friars promote this important shrine and historic site, visit the Shrine website’s “Get Involved” page.
