St. Katharine Drexel, St. John Neuman, St. Theresa, and Sts. Louis and Zelie Martin, plus the Miraculous Metal and more.

We will also be celebrating American independence and our Constitutional Republic and patriotic sites. With the current “woke insurgency” trying to erase our history, we will be reminded of our history and celebrate our independence and liberty.
