Join Us!

We celebrate Indigenous Mass with music, fellowship and potluck at the Bronson Centre, Room 222. Our next mass will be on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 18, at 11:00 a.m.

  • 211 Bronson Avenue, Ottawa ON

We also have our weekday mass celebrated in our sacred space, at our office, 211 Bronson Ave, Room 308 , every Thursday at 2:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Music has always played a central part in mass, and we use traditional drums, chanting and rhythms to celebrate our faith.

We use the sacred ceremony of smudging during mass to prepare our hearts to connect with the Creator.
During the Liturgy of the Word, the reader may hold a sacred eagle feather.

The Paschal Mystery

Even though Jesus lived in a different age and on a different continent, when we read the Gospels, we often encounter how present His words are within Indigenous values. At Kateri Native Ministry, the Paschal Mystery is at the centre of our spiritual life, and as Indigenous people it offers us an amazingly powerful model to help us understand our place in Creation.

Life

Our ancestors built a wealth of wisdom, experience and sacred traditions.

Death

After contact with Western Civilization, Indigenous People have faced immense suffering and disconnection from generation to generation.

Resurrection

Indigenous culture is being restored, our knowledge is returning to the world and at Kateri Native Ministry we are discerning our path as Indigenous Christians in the 21st century.
