This is a special month at Saint Kateri Rosary Walk. We are celebrating “Saint Kateri Feast Day”. You are invited to visit the Sacred Heart Retreat Center (immediately adjacent to the Saint Kateri Rosary Walk) on July 14 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
During your visit you will hear about the history and progress of the St. Kateri Rosary Walk and Shrine project. Weather permitting, we will take a leisurely tour and walk of the Saint Kateri Rosary Walk under our beautiful Southwest Skies.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha, whose feast we celebrate on July 14, is the first Native American Saint.
God’s grace is in the culture of all believers. That same grace existed in Saint Kateri. Called to help be good stewards of the lands we live upon, Saint Kateri sought to live in harmony with nature. Saint Kateri had a deep connection with the land while following the rhythms and patterns of nature all around her.
Despite the lack of a formal education Saint Kateri became sort of a “Living Bible” of scriptural knowledge. Kateri would share stories from scripture and joyfully tell her Mohawk people of God’s plan for humankind, of his love and mercy and of the great dignity that each person has.

Our Saint Kateri Rosary Walk "Missionary" Interns
All the “Missionary” Interns (as Bishop Wall Prefers to call them) have been hard at work building something to last for generations to come this summer. We all give a great big Thank You to the whole crew of fantastic young men! We are blessed to have them here.
If you are out on the trail this summer at the Saint Kateri Rosary Walk and you see them working, be sure to give them a thank you as well. Visit our Photo Gallery and follow along with the progress being made.
On a personal note, Joni and I would like to express our gratitude for being honored to fill in and to do this post for Deacon Ed this month.
Deacon Ed and his wife Ann both contracted Covid. Both have been under the weather, especially Deacon Ed with some “Post Covid” heart issues. He is doing a little better now and on the road to recovery. Our prayers go out to Deacon Ed and Annie.
Thank you and God Bless,
John and Joni
“The Web People” as Deacon Ed calls us.
