Join Us this Weekend to Celebrate Saint Kateri's Feast Day!

Please see our Summer Calendar of Events for this weekend's schedule. We are grateful and excited to welcome back the Mohawk Choir of Akwesasne this year, who will provide the music for our Native Masses.

These events are open to everyone and preregistration is not necessary. At this point, we plan to reopen Saint Peter's Chapel and the Native American Museum this weekend. The Candle Chapel, the site of the Mohawk village, and the spring where Saint Kateri was baptized continue to be accessible. The gift shop will also be open this weekend.

In accordance with CDC guidelines, we do ask that unvaccinated individuals wear a mask during Mass and while in the buildings to help protect the vulnerable members of our community. Masses will be held outdoors in our Saint Maximilian Kolbe Pavilion.

We look forward to seeing you!

Services continue to be held in our outdoor Saint Maximilian Kolbe Pavilion rain or shine. We are holding 4:30 vigil Mass on Saturday and 10:30 Mass on Sunday every week.

Per the latest guidelines from New York State and the Albany Diocese:

  • Congregants will be asked to wear masks while in Kolbe Pavilion and in the gift shop only if they are unvaccinated. If possible, we ask that you bring hand sanitizer to use before receiving Communion to help protect our celebrant and others receiving the host.

  • Social distancing in the pews must be observed.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available as you enter the Pavilion and before receiving Communion.

  • The use of hymnals, missalettes, and Bibles is temporarily suspended. Bulletins area available but must be taken with you when you leave. Weekly readings are posted on our website.

  • PLEASE REMEMBER that dispensation from Mass is still in place! If you are unwell or simply uncomfortable with attending, we encourage you to stay home. The “Spiritual Resources” section of our website has links to places you can attend Mass virtually online, as well as the prayer for Spiritual Communion and similar religious guidance that you can take advantage of while staying safe – it even has nature webcams to help you stay connected with Creation from home!
