Native American Ministry

The principle mission of the Franciscan Friars of the Holy Spirit is to the Native Americans in the Diocese of Phoenix.

Our community's home and formation house, St Kateri Tekakwitha Friary can be found on the Gila River Indian Reservation. We celebrate Masses at various missions across the Gila River Indian Reservation as well as in the Ak-Chin Indian Reservation and Salt River Reservation.
