Kateri to be canonized in October – Times Union

FONDA — Years of prayer and lobbying the Vatican for sainthood by devotees of Kateri Tekakwitha at local shrines were met with jubilation Saturday after Pope Benedict XVI announced Oct. 21 as the canonization date for the young Native American and mystic who lived in the Mohawk Valley in the 17th century.The Pope also will elevate to sainthood another woman with upstate ties, who also is credited with miracles. Mother Marianne Cope, who grew up in Utica in the mid-1800s, entered religious life with the Sisters of Saint Francis in Syracuse. She was among seven new saints scheduled for canonization.”Everyone is very excited and its wonderful that she will become the first Native American saint,” said Wayne Carpenter, a retired state worker and volunteer office manager at the national shrine to Kateri, a 200-acre compound on Route 5 in Fonda, Montgomery County.
