Youth Group Returns From Tekakwitha Conference

Our Youth Group returned home with plenty of pictures and memories to share with us! Which, we will share in three different updates just so we don't miss anything. We are very excited to share their adventures with you all. Please read below what Jennifer Black Bear, Youth Group Coordinator shared with us:


"The trip to Tacoma, WA was a very awesome trip! We are very thankful for all of the support and encouragement for our group. Our youth group was very blessed with the opportunity to stay at Carol Guenther's home. We were welcomed by Julie Cippoletti and Mary Dickens when we arrived!


The Kateri Tekakwitha Conference at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, Tacoma, WA

The youth worked very hard the weeks leading up to the Conference. They all made their very own Ribbon skirts to wear at the Conference! We are super proud of all of them for their dedication and hard work they did! The Grand Entry was awesome! There were Kateri Circles that were represented many states. I counted three youth circles including ours

We saw Bishop Gruss and Fr. Sands and took a picture with them! The youth helped Fr. Sands with the Black & Indian Mission booth during breaks."
