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