Join St. Paul's Oakerhater Guild for a weekend to celebrate the annual Feast of St. Oakerhater, the first Native American deacon in the Episcopal Church to serve Indian Territory that later became Oklahoma. We welcome the Rev. Dr. Bradley Hauff as our guest speaker and preacher. He currently serves as the Indigenous Missioner of the Episcopal Church.
Fr. Hauff is a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff. In his role, Hauff is responsible for enabling and empowering Indigenous peoples and their respective communities within the Episcopal Church while also guiding the broader Church in intercultural competencies.
He is a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and lives in Minneapolis. He previously served as rector of All Saints’ in Philadelphia, PA, and has served congregations in Florida, Texas, Minnesota and South Dakota. Hauff holds a Master of Divinity from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary; a Doctor of Clinical Psychology from Minnesota School of Professional Psychology of Argosy University; a Master of Education from South Dakota State University; and a Bachelor of Arts, Augustana College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Saturday night from 5-8pm we will host Fr. Hauff's presentation on the Episcopal Church's response to Indian Boarding Schools and enjoy dinner and live entertainment.
