July 14 is the feast day of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. She is another of the Americans honored with a patch in the NCCS-BSA Footsteps of the American Saints patch program. This program encourages youth to learn more about our American saints and blesseds. This patch can be earned within a scout group, youth group, or just as a family activity. As part of the patch program, young people must learn a little about the life of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. Here is some information to help.
