Prayers for my life long friend Ruby "Tubby" Parisien, she has been in Trinity ICU Minot for a few days. She had 4 gran mall seizures, her daughter Kelby is with her at the moment and has been praying the rosary for her mom's healing. I was able to get her to smile. This afternoon the breathing tube will be removed and she will be able to sit up and start coughing to get rid of excess junk. I promised to go back later today and fix a nice huge bouffant hairdo and paint her finger nails pretty pink, she frowned and shook her head no, lol. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha please heal Tubby.

The Tekakwitha Conference National Center has relocated to 2225 North Bolton Avenue in Alexandria, Louisiana 71303. Though it is already January 15, 2014, the office is not in full operation. We now have phone and internet services for a week. There are a number of volunteer angels who have visited and offered their services to assist with unpacking and setting up the new office space we have. Those who have seen Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's new home love it. If you are in the area do stop by and see the new home for the National Tekakwitha Conference. I do believe all the Kateri Tekakwitha statues on stands or shelving, and images displayed on the walls like 'their new home' at 2225 North Bolton Ave. for all of her friends to see. Perhaps the 76th Annual Tekakwitha Conference in 2015 here in her hometown will be an occasion for you to stop by. The WELCOME MAT will be ready for you.
If you're in the Boone area on January 24th, please consider attending the Jared Gallamore Memorial Concert. Jared was a friend and former Appalachian Studies colleague who suddenly passed away last November. Suggested $5 donation for Jared's church, St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, which was a cause near and dear to his heart. Jared and I talked about religion from time to time; he was raised Methodist, converted to Catholicism, and later joined the Russian Orthodox Church; He was interested, as a scholar of Cherokee Studies, in my thoughts about St. Kateri Tekakwitha, and extremely supportive of my decision to enter seminary, for which I was grateful. May he rest in peace. For more information, contact Rachel Simon.

Spiritual beliefs The Iroquois believe that the spirits change the seasons. Key festivals coincided with the major events of the agricultural calendar, including a harvest festival of thanksgiving. The Great Peacemaker (Deganawida) was their prophet. After the arrival of the Europeans, many Iroquois became Christians, among them Kateri Tekakwitha, a young woman of Mohawk-Algonquin parents. Traditional spirituality was revived to some extent in the second half of the 18th century by the teachings of the Haudenosaunee prophet Handsome Lake.[43]

Blood Donors Needed! Just as everyone is getting back into a routine following the holidays, Mother Nature is doing her best to keep people off the roads across much of the U.S. Severe winter storm Hercules dumped deep snow in the Northeast and extreme cold is penetrating the central U.S. As a result, the American Red Cross expects blood drive cancellations and low donor turnouts in these areas. And yet, despite some donors having a reduced ability to donate, patients will continue to need blood products. Donors in unaffected areas are urged to help make up the donations lost in the weather-impacted areas. It's the blood already on the shelves that helps save lives in an emergency. While all blood types are needed, donors with types O negative and B negative are strongly urged to donate in the next few days.

Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680) Kateri Tekakwitha A painting of Kateri Tekakwitha, c. 1682, by Father Chauchetière Wikipedia Kateri Tekakwitha, also called “Lily of the Mohawks,” is considered the Catholic patroness of ecology and the environment. She was born in 1656 in what now is upstate New York, on the upper portion of Lake Ontario and near the modern Canadian border. Her father was a Mohawk chief, and her mother was an Algonquin who had been baptized as a Catholic prior to being captured by Mohawks in warfare. It was not unusual in Native American culture to wait to name a baby until the child showed some distinguishing characteristic, and the name of their infant would evolve with time. In 1660, when she was four, smallpox spread through her village and took the lives of her mother, father, and younger brother. She survived, but was left weaker, scarred, and partially blind. Thus, she was named Tekakwitha, which means “The One Who Walks Groping for Her Way.” Her uncle, also a Mohawk ch ...

Simbang Gabi is a tradition that manifests the Filipino spirituality of celebrating the birth of Christ through liturgy, Christmas carols, parols, native delicacies and reunion of families and friends, integrated in the nine days of liturgical celebration. Traditionally, Christmas Day in the Philippines is ushered in by the nine-day novena of Masses that starts on Dec. 16 and culminates on Dec. 24 with the family event, “Noche Bue ...
Lance Moar Some members of a Manitoba First Nation say they're shocked to hear their chief used the band's video lottery terminal revenue to fly to Rome for the canonization of North America's first aboriginal saint. Hundreds of Canadians, including many aboriginal people from across the country, were at the Vatican on Sunday to watch Pope Benedict XVI canonize Kateri Tekakwitha. Among those who travelled to Rome was Chief Donovan Fontaine of the Sagkeeng First Nation, as well as Fontaine's wife and five other band members. CBC News has learned that their trip was financed with video lottery terminal revenue generated on the First Nation. Marilyn Courchene, a Sagkeeng member who is studying aboriginal self-governance at the University of Winnipeg, said the band's VLT revenue is supposed to help the community. "Would Kateri herself allow this to happen when she herself took care of her people?" Courchene said Monday. "That would be the question." Ninety per cent of VLT revenues generated on First Nations r ...

On this day, bless us that we should sustain the hungry. Amen." --written by Rabbi Scott Perio For MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger

THE MOHAWK TRIBE===The Mohawk People are the most easterly tribe of the Iroquois Confederacy. They are the People of "Ka Nee-en Ka" (or "Flint Stone Place") and are an Iroquoian-speaking indigenous people of North America. They were historically based in the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York; their territory ranged to present-day southern Quebec and eastern Ontario. Their traditional homeland stretched southward of the Mohawk River, eastward to the Green Mountains of Vermont, westward to the border with the Oneida Nation's traditional homeland territory, and northward to the St Lawrence River. As original members of the Iroquois League, or Haudenosaunee, the Mohawk were known as the "Keepers of the Eastern Door". For hundreds of years, they guarded the Iroquois Confederation against invasion from that direction by tribes from the New England and lower New York areas. Mohawk religion is predominantly Animist. Their current settlements include areas around Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence River in Canada an ...

(II) TO USE THE WORDS OF -Bishop Stanislaus Brzana, Bishop of Ogdensburg, N.Y. 'Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Model Ecologist.Kateri was a child of nature. Her sainthood will raise the minds and hearts of those who love nature and work in ecology.' Saint Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680) is honored as the Patron of people who love nature, work in ecology, and work to preserve the natural and human environments. She is the first Native North American saint. Kateri's baptismal name is Catherine, which in the Iroquois languages is Kateri. Kateri's Iroquois name can be translated as, "One who places things in order."1 or “To put all into place.”2 Other translations include, "she pushes with her hands" and "who walks groping for her way" (because of her faulty eyesight).

“The poverty I am threatened with does not scare me, because so little is needed to give to the necessities of this miserable life and my labor could provide for it and I could always find some rags to cover me.” St. Kateri Tekakwitha was a Mohawk who convert to Catholicism and the first Native American to be canonized.
Went to church last night at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Denver and to celebrate the 1-yr cannonization of Kateri Tekakwitha with the Kateri Group of Indians. The Church is so beautiful and the Service was great! The procession included a group that were in their traditional dress and was smudge throughout the service. Good job all!

A note from Mrs. Chavez: This week joining our cafeteria staff as a part-time cook will be Mrs. Martha Patricia Padilla. Mrs. Padilla has lived in Tucson for three years, but she is originally from Canaoa, Mexico. Mrs. Padilla worked in the private schools in Mexico as a licensed Social Worker and in Public Relations. Since moving to Tucson, she has been wanting to get into the schools, but her limited English skills have made it difficult. She volunteers at Amistad in Tucson as a family counselor twice a week. We are happy to have Mrs. Padilla join our SACS family where she will bring her passion for helping others and love for cooking. She and her husband are parishioners at Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Parish. They have six children and four grandchildren. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Padilla to our St. Ambrose Family.

HALLOWEEN: A CATHOLIC PERSPECTIVE Halloween has grown into a major secular holiday in American culture. But for those who don't value devotion to the saints, the Eve has become "hollow" instead of "hallow." The purpose behind it has been lost like celebrating New Year's Eve without a New Year's Day. Take away the saints and our beliefs about the dignity and destiny of human beings, and the only thing left is pre-Christian superstition regarding the dead. Among many Christians, there has been concern that things have gotten out of hand. After all, doesn't Halloween glorify evil? Is it right to send our children out as devils and vampires, or is it better to emphasize the saints, whose nearly forgotten feast day is the reason for Halloween? Hallow is the same word for "holy" that we find in the Lord's Prayer, and e'en is a contraction of "evening." The word Halloween itself is a shortened form of "All Hallows Eve," the day before All Saints Day How can we keep the religious connection and curb pre-Christian ...

Most Beautiful Churches. Today is the feast day of St. John Capistrano, a remarkable Franciscan Saint, known for a variety of mystical phenomena, including levitation. Today's church is found in San Juan Capistrano, California: the Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano. The church is of recent origin: built in the 1980s, but it is modeled after the original mission church which was destroyed in an earthquake in 1812. The church was granted the status of minor basilica in 2000, and that of National Shrine in 2003. Externally, the church is clearly Spanish-classical mission architecture. The grand retablo behind the main altar is one of its most prevalent features. It also is modern--built by Spanish artists in the 1980s. It is a 42-foot-high and 30-foot-wide 16-ton unit carved from cedar and covered in gold leaf. Its style is true to the 17th century retablos which would have ordinarily been found in such mission churches, although its carvings are paintings are of superlative, not primitive quality. ...
On this day in 2012, Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized a saint by the Catholic Church. She was one of seven officially declared a saint by Pope Benedict the 16th during a ceremony in Rome. Known as Lily of the Mohawks, she was born in the 1600s in present day New York. She's the Catholic Saint of ecology, nature and the environment.

Today's Feast of the North American Martyrs reminds me of the powerful experience it was to visit upstate New York last year where they lived. It was just as powerful knowing it's where St. Kateri Tekakwitha discovered the Faith. What a reminder that Saints come just as surely from our own time and place as they came from rural Upstate New York in the 17th Century. St. Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Isaac Jogues, St. John de Brebeuf and Companions , Pray for Us!
Father McDonell gave a very touching homily on St. Isaac Jogues today, pointing out that he knew spreading the Gospel was so important that he was willing to give his life for it. About ten years after his death, a little girl was born who became Christian and was ultimately martyred for her belief in God. Her name was Kateri Tekakwitha who recently became a saint herself. His point was, who knows what will happen when you speak of God to those around you?
October 19 – Saint Isaac Jogues and the North American Martyrs Saint Isaac Jogues (1607-1646) is one of eight North American Martyrs who gave their lives for the Catholic faith in the 1600s in North America. Six Jesuit priests and two laymen were among the French Catholic missionaries in the 1600s who came to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to what is now Quebec Province and New York State. He worked among the Huron tribe, who were frequently at was with the Iroquois. During one of the attacks by the Iroquois, Isaac and other missionaries were captured, beaten and tortured. Included in his torture was that several of his fingers were bitten, burned or cut off. Father Isaac managed to escape and with the help of a Dutch captain, returned to his native France. He received special permission to say Mass and after a period of recuperation, he then returned to North America to continue his missionary work. There he was captured again, tomahawked and beheaded after some of his possessions were thought ...

Save the date- December 1--"FIDES ECCLESIAE" This musical play highlights the lives of St. Calungsod and St. Kateri Tekakwitha. They are two of the seven recently canonized by Pope Benedict XVI. These two saints were chosen at a young age by the Jesuits and both died before they even reached the age of 20. Moreover, this musical was inspired by the fact that it connects with young people who at this time are having their own faiths tested. Fides Ecclesiae hoped to inspire our youth to bridge their relationship with God and renew their faith. Tickets are now on sale, $50-$100. Please PM me for more info.

St. Isaac Jogues, St. John de Brébeuf and Companions French Jesuits were the first missionaries to go to Canada and North America after J. Cartier discovered Canada in 1534. Their mission region extended from Nova Scotia to Maryland. Isaac Jogues, John de Brebeuf, Gabriel Lalemant, Noel Chabanel, Charles Garnier, Anthony Daniel, Rene Goupil and John de Lalande (the first six Jesuits, the last two laymen) preached the gospel to the Iroquois and Huron Indians, and after being tortured, they were martyred in the area of what is now Auriesville, New York. The martyrdoms took place between 1642 and 1649. Ten years after the martyrdom of St. Isaac Jogues, Kateri Tekakwitha was born in the same village in which he died. These martyrs are co-patrons of Canada. The missionaries arrived in Canada less than a century after its discovery by Cartier in 1534, in the hope of converting the Indians and setting up "New France." Their opponents were often the English and Dutch colonists. When Isaac Jogues returned to Pari ...

Two interesting thing happend recently that brought Native Americans into the spot light. The first Native American to win the Miss America pagent (Nina Davuluri) won the 2014 Crown. The first Native American to become a cannonized saint (Kateri Tekakwitha) took place this year. She was a 17th century Mohawk. You have to ask yourself, why did these two mile stones take so long? One of the reasons has to be because their Native Americans. The influenial powers that be have always tried to hide and sweep under the rug things that remind them of the low handed thievery some of the fore fathers commited against them in the past. And just for the record, I wasn't there 150-200 years ago, and I wasn't a part of that scam that went down back then, So don't try and lay any guilt trip on Me just because My skin is white. ThankYou! And reason number two is because their women. Let face it, women have always been a threat to Men in "the big boys club" and organized religion is part of that club. My hats of ...
Tribute to Chief Dan George on the anniversary of his passing!! How long have I known you, Oh Canada? A hundred years? Yes, a hundred years. And many, many seelanum more. And today, when you celebrate your hundred years, Oh Canada, I am sad for all the Indian people throughout the land. For I have known you when your forests were mine; when they gave me my meat and my clothing. I have known you in your streams and rivers where your fish flashed and danced in the sun, where the waters said 'come, come and eat of my abundance.' I have known you in the freedom of the winds. And my spirit, like the winds, once roamed your good lands. But in the long hundred years since the white man came, I have seen my freedom disappear like the salmon going mysteriously out to sea. The white man's strange customs, which I could not understand, pressed down upon me until I could no longer breathe. When I fought to protect my land and my home, I was called a savage. When I neither understood nor welcomed his way of life, I wa ...

Beautiful tenet expressed on the Grove sign at the Kateri Tekakwitha Shrine in NY.
Hannah will be in the summer session of CFF (a.k.a CCD) to start off her summer break. She has to do research on a saint, do a paper and display. Now, my favorite saint is Saint Francis yet I have a feeling there will be A LOT of Saint Francis papers due to our new Pope. So, I would like to think outside the box and pick a saint that isn't really spoken a lot about. Does anyone have any suggestions before I start looking saints up?

Anyone know how & where can I find adoption records from NY 1930's? This search keeps giving me dead ends & I'm tired of feeling lost trying to find my Tota's family. Here's what I've got so far: she went to resi at 5 (1931), she was adopted around 1933, and her birth certificate was created by her adoptive parents under the name they gave her (post adoption). So far, her legal name shows threads that don't make sense & contradict each other (ancestry.com). She was too young to know what rez she came from, but 3 different medicine women have told me K-town, so I believe she's from there but can't find anything PRE-adoption. Can anyone help?
Sharing with you: "Faith Update - Views, Opinions and Insight from The Catholic Transcript's Columnists and Guests". (From Fr Mike Umoh) Pope Francis’ Wisdom Created on Friday, 31 May 2013 09:53 | Written by Msgr. David Q. Liptak The Church and the world are obviously fascinated with our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, and desire to know everything they can about him. As the very first Roman Pontiff from the Americas, he is a reminder of the Church’s earliest beginnings in our hemisphere, that saints were emerging in South America even before the Church could get organized in what is now the United States. Indeed, the Jesuit Martyrs (e.g., St. Isaac Jogues) and our country’s first native born saint, Kateri Tekakwitha, postdate the very first canonized New World heroine of faith, Rose of Lima. All of this history has been renewed in our consciousness by Argentine-born Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Unlike Pope Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI, our new Roman Pontiff is not the author of a hundred significa ...

First contact with European settlers [edit] In 1614, the Dutch opened a trading post at Fort Nassau, New Netherland, near present-day Albany, New York. The Dutch initially traded for furs with the local Mahican. In 1628, the Mohawk tribe defeated the Mahican, who retreated to Connecticut. The Mohawk gained a near-monopoly in the fur trade with the Dutch by not allowing the neighboring Algonquian-speaking tribes to the north or east to trade with them. The Dutch established trading posts at present-day Schenectady and Schoharie, further west in the Mohawk Valley. The Mohawk and Dutch became allies. Their relations were peaceful even during the periods of Kieft's War and the Esopus Wars, when the Dutch fought localized battles with other tribes. The Dutch trade partners equipped the Mohawk to fight against other nations allied with the French, including the Ojibwe, Huron-Wendat, and Algonquin. In 1645 the Mohawk made peace with the French.

My daughter Claire was Confirmed Tuesday night by Archbishop Sample. I was honored to serve as one of the deacons. The Archbishop gave one of the best Confirmation homilies I've ever heard: solid, challenging, passionate, and encouraging. I seriously had to restrain myself from shouting "Amen! Alleluia!" at least four times. :) What a blessing he is to our Archdiocese!

I remember when we went to Phoenix AZ with Vi and Gigi and attened the Kateri Tekakwitha conference ... Saw Pope John Paul II early in the morning and he blessed us on that corner of the street then we witnessed him speak to us at the conference. Pretty historic moment for me , with my mother in law Violet Friedlander Abrahamson , who waited all her life to see a Pope in person..

LIFE & TIMES OF KATERI TEKAKWITHA - St. Kateri (1656-1680) was declared Venerable in 1943 and beatified in 2012. This book, written in 1891, gives a glimpse of the tensions and complexity of social relationships both between and within native and European-decended societies, not only in the XVIIth century in which the saint lived but in the late XIXth century as well. A PDF of this fascinating 150-page book is available at our web portal here:
And so ends the reign of a great pope and a great man. This pope inspired us, he taught us to be activists, he helped us to live our faiths in social media, he gave us the Year of Saint Paul, the Year for Priests and the Year of Faith. He Beatified John Paul the great and Canonized Kateri Tekakwitha. He held us together through wars, revolutions and massive natural disasters. Now, like Moses he has passed the staff with great humility and gone up the mountain. Farewell Pope Benedict XVI. Healer, teacher, leader and friend.
At this time tomorrow, Pope Benedict XVI will officially resign. Say a prayer for him today.
Highlights of Benedict XVI's nearly eight-year pontificate (JAB) I thank God and will remember Pope Benedict XVI's papacy for: 1. GREATER UNITY WITH ANGLICANS: Pope Benedict XVI wrote Anglicanorum Coetibus in 2009, opening the doors for Anglicans who so chose to return to the Catholic Church. 2. GREATER UNITY WITH THE ORTHODOX: Under Pope Benedict XVI, the Joint International Commission for the Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church signed a document recognizing the Biblical and Christian traditional roots of the universal leadership of the Pope. 3. OUTREACH TO VICTIMS OF CLERGY ABUSE, REMOVAL OF OFFENDERS: In cities he visited like Sydney and New York, Pope Benedict XVI personally met with victims to offer them his and the Church's apology and solidarity, to cry with them. Among those removed were from office were Fr. Marcial Maciel, who victimize many and led a double life. 4. A CHURCH FOR THE ENVIRONMENT: Pope Benedict XVI laid the groundwork for the operation of ...

Pre-Easter Celebrations an Insult to American Indians. While strolling with friends through the busy streets of Spoleto, an ancient Italian city in the province of Umbria, we stepped into the start of celebrations or carnivals called, Quaresima. This is the time that precedes the celebration of Easter or the Great Feast, and according to the Roman Rite, had 44 days (starting from Ash Wednesday), while, according to the Ambrosian practice, it lasts 40, from the Sunday after Shrove Tuesday. This period is characterized by the call to conversion to God with typical practices of Lent fasting, ecclesiastical and other forms of penance, more intense prayer and the practice of charity. It is a journey of preparation to celebrate Easter, which is the culmination of the Christian holidays. This year’s carnival theme happened to be Cowboys and Indians. Italian actors wearing cowboy hats and bandanas, shooting shiny silver toy guns loaded with confetti into the air... Read more at
So thrilled for our friends Deacon Dana and Debbie (say that three times fast) Nearmyer...they were honored with the Cross of the Order of St. Benedict tonight at a banquet in downtown KC for Benedictine College. What a turnout of our priests and of their families and friends to celebrate lives of doin' it and not just sayin' it. We are so proud of them and so inspired by them. Their work in planting the seeds of our Catholic Christian leaders won't be harvested for awhile yet. So nice that people notice that the crop really looks good! God bless them and the ministry of Kateri Tekakwitha and St. James High School.
We ask You for the continued protection of our Land.  Protect our homes, protect our rights, guard our families, heal our wounds, inspire our children, and watch over us forever.  Call from among us, courageous priests, religious, and lay leaders who will work untiringly to build a Native church that will honor Your Son. We ask You this, through the Great Mystery that You are, living and present among us, now and forever, Amen.  Eva Solomon
After Mary, who is your favorite Saint?
Ooo…question of the day. If you don’t mind sharing….have you been Confirmed in your church….if so, did you choose a Confirmation name….if so, what is the name……and maybe, why did you choose it (you liked it, you had to, it means something to you, etc)?? I’m deciding whether to choose a name….good thing I’ve never had to name anything in life, this name choosing is difficult business.

Giovanna Paponetti says about her art, 'Through my art I can express the meaning of life, the driving force of our existence. Every brushstroke brings me closer in my quest to discover old instincts and how we relate to the natural world. As I capture the spirit of my models on canvas, they bring life to me as well. It is a union of mutual respect and gives me the courage to fly.' Click on the link below to see her paintings of the life of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha.

Since Ash Wednesday is next week, we’re beginning our Lenten coverage in this issue: • Bishop Hubbard’s column suggests a return to the sacrament of reconciliation, in keeping with “The Light is On for You,” a Lenten initiative inviting Catholics back to confession. • For those who’d be coming back to the sacrament after a long absence, we’ve included great tips from a priest who advises, “Just come. Don’t prepare.” • The Diocese’s Lenten regulations on fasting and Mass attendance are on page 5. • There are also two other Lenten columns: one on young adults, another on “watching the fridge” this season. Elsewhere in this issue: • A special Retirement/Financial Planning section covers issues of interest to seniors; • continuing coverage of Catholic Schools Week includes photo stories on an all-school art exhibit and a four-school fundraiser for hurricane victims, plus an article on school safety after the Newtown shootings; • a roundup of local and national news reflec ...

Mass of Thanksgiving Celebrates Canonizations A special Mass of thanksgiving in honor of two new US-born saints is celebrated at the Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington. WASHINGTON (CNS) — For Herman Ray, a Native American from Arizona, and Franciscan Sister Margaret Christi Karwowski, currently living in the Washington Archdiocese, the canonization of two Americans last Oct. 21 — Sts. Kateri Tekakwitha and Marianne Cope — confirmed something they already knew: the holiness of two remarkable women. "She has been my guide in many ways," Sister Margaret Christi said about St. Marianne, a Sister of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities in Syracuse, N.Y., who ministered both in education and caring for the sick. While Ray explained his belief that St. Kateri "has made a big influence on my life — thanks to her I believe I can be a Native American and still be Catholic." About a thousand faithful joined Ray and Sister Margaret Christi, 11 bishops from across the United States and two from Ca ...
