Celebrating our catholic life

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, 
National Indian Parish
is composed of three unique Native American Reservations approximately 22 miles apart.  

The designation of a National Parish
means that we minister to all Native Americans
regardless of their geographic location or tribal affiliation
as long as they reside within the Diocese of San Diego.  

​We were established as a Parish in 1982
and because we served 3 distinct
Native American Reservations
the Parish was dedicated
​under the Patronage
​of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha.  

​Each reservation is still known by its original name.
