The American Saints Activity series helps families learn more about American saints in hopes that they will look to them as role models. One of the offerings in the series is based on the life of St. Kateri Tekkwitha.
To earn the patch, youth and adults must learn about the life of St. Kateri. Then they participate in their choice of activities based on what they have learned. For St. Kateri, the activities include drawing a picture, writing a prayer about nature, and visiting a children’s hospital or senior citizen’s home.
More information about the program and the complete requirements for the patch can be found at Kateri Tekkwitha Activity for Families.
This series is promoted by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, but all youth and adults can do the activities and receive the patches, whether in Scouting or not, or Catholic or not.
