Mark your calendars: September 14-15, 2012

I do try to carefully listen to the voice of God, but the voice I heard from the heavens today didn’t quite fit into that category. Right in the middle of my homily at mass this morning, our wireless microphone system picked up something broadcast on a signal frequency close to ours, and over the loudspeaker we heard part of what sounded like a town hall meeting! We had a good laugh, they tried to get back to the business of praying and giving thanks for what was truly a blessed and wonderful weekend. Several of our visitors were able to stay for services today as well.

The rest of the day, my adrenaline from the weekend finally wore off, and I took a nap, read and did laundry. Next year’s powwow will again be the third weekend in September.

We’re already dreaming of September 14-15, 2012!

At St. Joseph’s Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 89 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.

  1. Well now I know where I’ll be on September 14-15, 2012! We had such a special visit this Pow Wow. Seeing the faces of the children and the staff is like a shot of adrenalin to our spirits! I felt especially blessed this visit because I got to meet a lot of new St. Joe donors who had made this trip for the first time! It was so much fun to share some info with them (like where to eat lunch in town)!

    Thank you St. Joe’s for hosting, yet again, an absolutely amazing pow wow!
