Welcome to the Tekakwitha Conference National Center's Website!

"Let all creation help you to praise God..." (St. Paul of the Cross)

The Tekakwitha Conference is a religious non-profit organization that advocates evangelization among the Indigenous Catholics of North America and to all who desire to walk humbly with God.

The heart of the Vision and Mission is to share God's Word with our brothers and sisters and live the Gospel message in the spirit of our patroness, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. She is a faithful model as a follower of Jesus. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is known as the patroness of ecology and care for all of God's creation.

We invite you to visit us often and to learn more about this organization. We are named in honor of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha who was canonized the First Indigenous Woman of North America on October 21, 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome, Italy. Our Annual Tekakwitha Conference, a gathering of All Nations, is dedicated to her as well.



3.29.17 Lent Cross

Isaiah 58: 6-7

6. "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 7. Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter - when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
