The Tacoma Kateri Circle is a group consisting of parish members who try to emulate the life of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, a Mohawk Indian girl who is canonized in the Catholic Church.

Our priest for the Native American Mass is Jesuit Father Patrick Twohy. Our church, St Leo's, is a Jesuit parish and is a Catholic community centered in the Eucharist, enriched by diversity, committed to Gospel values, and continually seeking to be Christ's servant presence in the world.

Kateri Circles both adult and youth exist under the auspices of the Tekakwitha Conference.
