Isabelle Siouï shows the medals, prayers, frames and keepsakes that can now be purchased in the back of the church to commemorate Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha who will be named a saint this fall.

Quebec City's Huron-Wendat village, Wendake, has had a shrine to Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha for a long time. Now, with the advent of her sainthood in Rome this coming October by Pope Benedict XVI, the historic Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Church is opening a boutique to honour her.
