Katherine Drexel (1858-1955) is the second American-born Catholic to be declared a Saint. She was the daughter of a very wealthy Philadelphia banker. She was raised in high society, well-traveled with a top-quality education. She could have spent her life amusing herself. Instead, she took to heart her parents' deep Catholic faith.

Every week her family took poor people into their home and gave them food, clothing, and rent assistance. Katherine would follow that model for over 60 years, using her inheritance to open many schools and missions. She had a special heart for the Native American and Black American peoples, and spent her life and huge fortune working to improve their living conditions.

By the time of her death, she had more than 500 sisters in the teaching order she had founded, Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, and had opened 63 schools and 50 missions. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2000. Feast day March 3. Patron of racial justice and philanthropists. (source:
