St. Katharine Drexel: Apostle to the Oppressed

In her life's span from 1858 to 1955 Katharine's activity was phenomenal in its extent and breath. This affluent socialite put not only her wealth at the service of the poor and oppressed, but made a total gift of herself to Christ and his people.

What the Sisters Do

We recognize in the poor the Body of Christ, and we live among them in the inner cities, on the reservations, in the North, South, East and West, respecting their cultures, praying and working by their sides for an end to poverty, racism and injustice.
