KATERI — Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Saskatoon celebrated the feast day of St. Kateri Tekakwitha on April 17 (Canada), with a procession from Guadalupe House to St. Mary’s Parish, carrying the statue of St. Kateri, praying the rosary and singing hymns on a beautiful spring afternoon. The event concluded with supper in the hall. St. Kateri, known as the Lily of the Mohawks, was born in 1656, and died April 17, 1680, at the age of 24. Born in what is now New York state, she became a Christian as a young woman, and moved to the Jesuit mission village of Kanawake, south of Montreal, where she was known for her virtue and her devotion to Jesus. She was beatified in 1980 by Pope John Paul II, and canonized by Pope Benedict on Oct. 21, 2012. (Yaworski photo)
