Our diocese has been richly blessed with peoples of every culture, language and tradition. What binds us together, however, through all this diversity is our gift of faith. Our Christian heritageencourages us to reach out and share, by our lives, what we believe. As Native American Catholics, we are very invested in carrying out our mission as members of the Church, and sharing the gifts of the Creator.
Our Kateri Circles gather for prayer, educational talks, sharing and outreach. Whether you are of Native heritage or not, you are always welcome to our Circles and to any of our events.
It is our hope that more Native American Catholics will become involved across the diocese so that our expression of prayer and ceremony, an outgrowth of our own spirituality, will touch the lives of many others. As the Spirit directs you, if you would like more information, or have any questions, please contact Maureen Biebrich at (813) 641-8803 or the Multicultural Office (727) 344-1611 ext. 5471
