Current Announcements

The Raleigh Area Kateri Circle was chartered in 2004 for the purpose of establishing a "home" for Native American Catholics and interested others. The circle meets monthly with the purpose of praying for one another and all people through the intercession of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, our patroness. We gather as well to share fellowship and traditions and pass these on to our children.

In addition, members of the circle work for the greater needs of the Tekakwitha Conference, the only national organization that supports the interests of Catholic Natives /Aboriginals in the United States and Canada.

Interested persons may inquire about joining our meetings by contacting our current leadership: Christine Keffer, 919-219-4606.
