Saint Katharine Drexel, Virgin

Optional Memorial

Saint Katharine Drexel was born in 1858 in Pennsylvania. As the daughter of a wealthy banker and philanthropist, Katharine was exposed to social ideals at an early age. Upon returning from a trip out West, in which she encountered the undesirable living conditions of the Indian-Americans, Katharine decided to leverage her wealth and resources to uplift their lives. Ultimately, she founded over 60 schools and missions focused on educating and ministering to Indian-Americans and Afro-Americans. She is remembered for her devote prayer life, courage towards social justice and unending generosity. Saint Katharine was beatified by Blessed John Paul II in 1980.*
