Update: Mass of Thanksgiving – Date Change


National Shrine Mass, Jan. 26 to Honor Sts. Kateri Tekakwitha & Marianne Cope. The new date for the Mass of Thanksgiving is Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 at 2 p.m. The Mass will be held at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It will be offered in thanksgiving for both of the U.S. Church’s newest saints: Kateri Tekakwitha and Mother Marianne Cope. This date was chosen because it is near the Jan. 23 feast day of Mother Marianne and Jan. 25, which is the March for Life. – Rev. W. Carroll Paysse, Executive Director, Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions
