Tekakwitha Easter

Tekakwitha Easter

Can you help me put a smile on the face of a child here at the Tekakwitha Indian Missions?

I am always impressed with the enthusiasm of our children as they prepare for their Sacraments. First Communion, First Reconciliation and Confirmation are truly milestones in the faith development of a young Catholic. But do we always properly recognize these accomplishments? Usually not, and that's where you come in.

Over the next year I would like every child at the Tekakwitha Indian Missions to receive a gift when they successfully complete a Sacrament. These will not be expensive gifts - a rosary, prayer book or statue. But it will be an on going reminder to that child that their faith development is important and should be continued for a lifetime.

Can you provide a young person with a sacramental gift this year? Your gift of $25 will do just that, and put a smile on a child's face.

Faith development is the core mission of our Tekakwitha Center here on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. At the center, religious education instructors for all six of our parishes are trained to effectively pass on the faith to the next generation. The Tekakwitha Center is not self-sufficient. We rely on the generosity of friends of the Missionary Oblates, friends like you, to keep this vital ministry operating on the Reservation.

As we take part in the Lenten season, can you make a small sacrifice in support of our Tekakwitha Center? Your gift of 25 cents, 50 cents or $1 for each of the 40 days of Lent will help us continue this vital ministry.

I also invite you to join us in our celebration of Easter at our six parishes on the White Earth Reservation.
