HOW TO CONTRIBUTE Since our Community here at St. Thomas’ is not a legal entity, we need to have our finances run through the books of St. Kateri Parish. Therefore, checks should be made payable to “St. Kateri Tekakwitha-Latin Mass Community” OR for short, “SKT-LMC”. Contributions can be placed in the blue envelopes OR loose in the collection baskets. Contributions deposited in envelopes from neighboring parishes will be returned to those home parishes and will not be credited to SKT-LMC. SKT-LMC envelopes deposited in neighboring parish collections will be returned and credited to us.

As part of the ceremony, the Priest-Celebrant will lead us in a LITANY praising the Blessed TRINITY and the Blessed MOTHER.

During it, three times the congregation will be asked to participate by reciting together the Glory Be and the Hail Mary. After the crowning, ALL will pray together the Hail, Holy Queen.
