Harvest Ceremony and Prayer
February 16 at 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm CST
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet community is invited to join in harvesting herbal medicines for the prayer and worship services of our partners from Gitchitwaa Kateri (Catholic Indigenous) Community. We will be guided by Elder Joseph Bester.
In the past, participants have gathered bark, twigs, and branches from trees and bushes by the CSJ gardens, the Carondelet Village pond area, the Dewdrop pond, and in the Quad. This work is done in ceremonial prayer, with deep reverence, and all harvesters are given guidelines on what and how to harvest so we leave no harm.
After the harvest, we’ll gather for hot chocolate and apple cider. This is the fourth year the CSJ community has been offered this opportunity, and we are excited!
