This window depicts Saint Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680) and
Joseph helped the Jesuits translate prayers and spread the
Word to his people and is depicted kneeling in prayer. Kateri
was the first Native American to achieve sainthood. She spent
much of her time devoted to prayer and is said to have

depicted here with head bowed in prayer.
