PHOENIX, Ariz (AP) Catholic American Indians are hoping Pope John Paul II will designate a Mohawk woman who died 307 years ago as the first Indian saint when he visits Phoenix this fall. "It would be a very beautiful thing," said John Peiotte of Gallup. N.M., the first Indian Catholic bishop. "We have every hope that the Holy Father will do this. We certainly have expressed that hope very loudly and clearly in all our correspondence with Rome." Peiotte, who will join the pope here in September in a special meeting with 16,000 Indians, said such a canonization "would have a very strong impact" on the nation's 1.5 million Indians, about 285,000 of whom are Catholics.

(AP) — A retired businessman who devotes his time to erecting Christian crosses in public view on roadsides and hilltops, says he is expanding the project in this country and overseas. Bernard L. Coffindaffer. whose crews have planted 975 clusters of three crosses each in 15 states, says the work moves next into other states of the South, Midwest and New England and also Into Zambia and the Philippines. lie says he also is visiting landholders around 10 West German cities in August to Me if they want "Crowes of Mercy" raised. He pay* the costs through donations, and agrees to maintain the crones. by the pope in 1980, the step before canonization. "Up until the beatification, she was known only to the tribes of the Northeast" where the Mohawks are located, Peiotte said. "Now, you can find statues of her in Navajo churches. All across the Southwest, there are pictures and medallions of Kateri Tekawitha. This in itself is a kind of miracle, good enough for her canonization. She has been the great unifier of Indian Catholics." If the pope designates her for sainthood, the College of Cardinals in Rome would process the canonization, which could take several months. Peiotte said he has received no signals from Rome but thinks it is possible because Pope John Paul has named others to sainthood on previous trips. Tekawitha died in 1680 at age 24 of smallpox after leading a life, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia, of "austerity and charity." Her baptism in 1676 and her vow to remain a virgin met so much opposition she was forced to flee her tribe, but she continued working among other tribes, historians say. It is said that at the moment she died, her smallpox scars vanished. The pope's visit with the Indians here is being billed as a step toward reconciliation in what Peiotte called an often- embarrassing relationship which started with priests accompanying the conquering Spanish and which some have blamed for the destruction of traditional Indian religions. "But we have come a long way since," Peiotte said, citing a 1977 church decision acknowledging the right of Indian Catholics to be both good members of the church and followers of their own traditional religious beliefs. The decision, the bishop said, came "after an uncomfortable meeting" in South Dakota between four Catholic bishops and a group of 66 Indians who formed a circle around and directed ''very hard questions" at the bishops. The Rev. Gilbert Hemauer of Great Falls. Mont., who'organiz- ed what became known after the meeting as the Tekawitha Conference because the Mohawk woman had become the symbol of Indian Catholicism, said the decision resulted in thousands of new converts and in the return to the church of many Indian Catholics who had become disillusioned. &CHURCH W nmcnr DIRECTORY BAYTOWN-LAPORTE SEVENTH DAY ADVEJtTlST CHURCH Hil.S.PrwC 07-4*6 Aftet Hours. 434 W>7 David Haniaiw Pastor SongSerwe . . ?(iam SaboaHi School . iO.Wa.ra Sernwc . .. . llwarr. ednesday T:»pm TRINITY TABERNACLE Jam E SMk.
