July 2014 Tekakwitha Conference

Tekakwitha Conference 75th Anniversary!
Ramada Plaza & Suites
Fargo, ND
July 23 –27, 2014

The yearly Tekakwitha Conference gathering, held in various cities around the country for 74 years, is frequently referred to as a “family reunion.”

Catholic Native Americans hailing from all over the USA and Canada converge on the host city to enjoy each other’s company and celebrate their Christian faith.

Join us in Fargo, North Dakota this year for the 75th Anniversary!

First Holy Communion and the Crowning of the Virgin Mary

St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Riviera Beach, Florida has had their class for First Holy Communion and the Crowning of the Virgin Mary on May 4th during the 11:00 Mass. We are excited because this is the first class in the last twenty years. Father Peter Truong, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi led hundreds of parishioners as they join in both celebrations of the Crowning of the Mother of Jesus and children receiving the Body of Christ for the first time.

Grant Provides New Religion Books for the St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School Library

St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School was very excited to be chosen as one of twelve schools across the United States to receive a grant from the Catholic Negro-American Mission Board to “update and enhance the religious section of the school’s new library”. The new volumes are being added to the library and are available to both students and faculty. Pictured are Sr. Mary Schifferle, Religion teacher and Mrs. Tammy Wakefield, Fourth grade teacher, with several fourth graders getting a first look at the new books. Thank you!
