History: St. Lucy’s is a predominantly non-Native American parish, which has had some Native American (e.g. Mohawk) parishioners, 1950s-present. Native parishioners founded and have maintained an active St. Kateri Tekakwitha Committee, 1979-present. Initially, the committee organized to support St. Kateri’s canonization cause, which concluded in 2012.

Holdings of Catholic records about Native Americans: Sacramental records (e.g. baptisms, marriages, burials) for Native American parishioners and records of the St. Kateri Tekakwitha Committee and website: http://katerisyracuse.com/.

Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives. However, Marquette’s holdings, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, include related records about these Native and Catholic groups and places.
