Ticket Information

Ticket sales for this event are now closed.


It has been twenty years since Kateri Native Ministry started its journey towards Healing and Reconciliation and we continue that tradition this May. Our founder John Corston experienced the healing touch of our Lord and during the conference we will share our calling and propel ourselves to move forward and bring the Good News to our people. 

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations.” (Mt 28; 19)

These words call each one of us to spread our experience of God’s love.

Our special guest for the conference will be Sr. Ann Shields, internationally renowned speaker, author of numerous books on Catholic spirituality and host of the popular daily radio program Food for the Journey.

Sr. Ann was awarded the Benemerenti Medal by Pope Benedict XVI in September of 2012 for service to the Church and will be discussing the power of healing.
