SAINT KATERI TEKAKWITHA
We have a new shrine on our property in honor of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the Lily of the Mohawks. Saint Kateri is one of Saints of New York and one of the patrons of the environment.
She faces North East, North towards her earthly homeland and East towards her heavenly homeland, for East represents our expectation of Christ's Second Coming. To quote St. Augustine: "When we rise to pray, we turn East, where heaven begins."
Our shrine was landscaped as a gift from Saint Augustine Class of 2016. Many thanks!
