On the anniversary of the Canonization of St. Kateri Tekakwitha we are invited to pray together that “all who live in this land, Indigenous and non-Indigenous may experience healing and reconciliation on a renewed journey of justice and peace for our children”.

The Holy Rosary is a prayer that is common to all Catholics in this land and has been prayed for generations in every indigenous language. We are invited to gather online to pray this prayer as one in 5 of Canada’s Indigenous languages. Click here to register, a Zoom link will be sent out on Friday, October 20.


we are sad to announce the cancellation of our medicine walk this weekend due to a death in the Cree community. We pray for all those affected and hope to schedule something similar soon.


Our pope has opened the season of creation with a powerful message on the importance of being stewards of creation. The full statement can be found below:


“With our deepest gratitude, the Board and Staff of the Kateri Native Ministry would like to thank Tony Solomon of Mukwa teepees for guiding all the volunteers in putting up our teepee. It looks so beautiful and majestic on the land that boaters slow down to see. I was honoured to be apart of the ceremony and sit and listen to the many teachings of creation and the differences of worldview.

It was hot and sometimes difficult however, the many hands and efforts helped make this sacred space a reality.

We did ceremony and feasted in the teepee with grateful hearts. Miigwetch to everyone. I can’t name them all as some arrived in the morning and some arrived later in the day. I drove out to Naataagaama yesterday and it is truly a beautiful sight.”

– Donna Naughton, Executive Director

We would like to honour Rosella Kinoshameg for receiving the Magis award last night at the Jesuits of Canada Provincial Dinner. Rosella has been doing work in Wiikwemkoong First Nation for her whole life supporting the community. Miigwetch Rosella.
