Cook in style and evangelize at the same time with our white St. Kateri Tekakwitha apron! In a fun design, the apron features an inspiring quote from Kateri Tekawitha, the "Lily of the Mohawks": "I am not my own; I have given myself to Jesus." The Turtle emblem represents the Turtle Clan into which Kateri was adopted at a young age and rests upon a white apron, made of 65% polysester, 35% cotton twill. Share devotion to St. Kateri, remind yourself to ask for her intercession, or give as a gift to a friend, at the same time protecting yourself or a loved one from getting grease spatters or puffs of flour on your clothing while cooking or baking. Help show the world Who you belong to and Who they can belong to.
Smallpox killed Kateri's whole family while she was a young girl, and she bore scars on her face for the rest of her life from this virile disease. She was baptized at the age of 20, and being persecuted by her tribe for her faith and vow of virginity, she left her village to live with Christian missionaries near Montreal. She spent the rest of her life praying and caring for the old and rick. She took ill herself in 1680 and died at the age of 24. She is the first Native American Saint to be canonized and is the patroness of the environment and ecology.
These aprons are one size fits all, being 28" long and 20" wide. For carrying around the recipe you are working on, your phone, or other important articles, there are two 7" wide pouch pockets on the front.
Use at a school or work cookout, at your parish brunch, or in the comfort of your home. Life is messy; nourishing others and serving them can be messy too, especially for families with little kids throwing things "into the mix" as well! Serve God and serve others while spreading a message and loving yourself by upkeeping your exterior presentation - and tending to and orienting your interior life to serving God in others. Enjoy nourishing the people of God with the protection and style of this handy apron!
