Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church

Father Sabourin and his parishioners followed her teachings in building the new church,
which is a mixture of the new and the old.


The "new" includes a control room that flashes photos onto two plasma TVs
one on each side of the altar, to reinforce Father Sabourin's sermons.
The old represents the recycling of goods from churches that have closed or been remodeled.

Our Lady & Jesus                                        Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha

The pews came from Our Lady of Victory in Woonsocket, the altar from St. Charles, in Providence,
the organ and piano from a convent in New Hampshire, the Stations of the Cross from Holy Name, in Pawtucket,
the Christ figure over the altar from Precious Blood, in Woonsocket,
and the two stained-glass windows behind the altar came from a former Rhode Island College professor
who bought them from a church that was closing in New Hampshire and donated them.
