Father Bill Vos holds incense over the St. Kateri print as Bishop Kinney reads a blessing. A new stained glass window of St. Kateri was blessed after the print.
A display in front of the altar at St. Kathryn’s featured a print given to St. Kathryn’s from its sister parish, St. Mary’s in Mora. The print was also given to Bishop John Kinney and Bishop Rafael Conde of Venezuela as gifts from St. Kathryn’s.
A stained glass window of St. Kateri was made by Sally Young of Wahkon and installed Oct. 17 at St. Kathryn Church in Ogilvie.
