Mass of Healing in Remembrance of the Miami Tribe
Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades invites all to attend a Mass of Healing in Remembrance of the Miami Tribe on Saturday, Oct. 2 at 5 p.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. This Mass marks the 175th anniversary of the forced removal of the Miami Tribe from Fort Wayne and the Wabash River valley in 1846. Cathedral Square in Fort Wayne, home of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, is burial ground to members of the Miami Tribe, some of whom have since been relocated.
Following Mass, all are welcome next door to the Diocesan Museum, 1103 S. Calhoun St., for an exhibit commemorating the Miami community. The exhibit will remain open through Oct. 30. Diocesan Museum is free and open to the public. For more information, visit diocesefwsb.org/museum.
