St. Katharine Drexel

St. Katharine Drexel (1858 – 1955) came from a rich American family. Although she had a privileged life, she used all her wealth to help others, especially Native Americans and African-Americans. St. Katharine established the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, an order of nuns who help oppressed people. She founded many schools and missions with her own money. She had great love for Jesus in the Eucharist and believed in the unity of all peoples. Her feast day is on 3 March.
