On October 21st, in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI will canonize Kateri Tekakwitha. To mark this special occasion, all are invited to go and watch the rebroadcast of the canonization at 9:00 a.m. at Saint-Francis-Xavier Mission in Kahnawake. It is at this very place that the remains of Saint Kateri, the lily of the Mohawks, are entombed. Msgr. Jacques Berthelet, C.S.V., bishop emeritus of Saint-Jean-Longueuil, will preside a Eucharistic Celebration at 10:30 am, just after the broadcast. A procession to the tomb of Kateri will be held afterward within the church and a period of adoration will follow until 5:00 p.m.
