Native American celebration set for St. John's Cathedral Sept. 29

Coming up at St. John's Cathedral -- An All Nations Celebration of Native American culture is set for Saturday, September 29, from 2 pm to 6 pm. Open to everyone, the celebration will be held in a circle inside the cathedral and followed by a pot-luck dinner at 4 pm. It is co-sponsored by St. John's and Episcopal Native Ministries for the Diocese of Los Angeles. The first diocesan event of its kind in many years, the celebration may grow into an annual event, planners say. The Rev. Canon Mary Crist, ministry leader, notes that are more than 250,000 Native Americans in Los Angeles County with additional large numbers in Riverside and San Bernardino counties and the wider Southland.
