The Story of Kateri Tekakwitha

Printer-friendly version Printer-friendly version

For 350 years, a young Christian Mohawk woman has been interceding for and inspiring natives and non-natives around the world. On October 2012, Kateri Tekakwitha became the first Native woman to be recognized as a Saint. This moving documentary takes us on a journey from northern New York State to Montrèal and Kahnawà:ke from Washington State to New Mexico, as we follow St. Kateri's incredible journey of deep faith, heroic sacrifice and love of Christ. Featuring many people who have been touched by her -including the little boy who received the miraculous healing that led to her canonization- the film shows that no one is too simple or too young to follow Christ, and that this woman, whose face was scarred and vision was weak, is still a source of Grace and healing for all. This film was made possible through a grant from the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus.
