The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament:
Who We Are

Since our foundation in 1891, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament have been called to fidelity in Mission. We consecrate ourselves to God through our congregation in a free and total gift of self. The Eucharist, God's free and total gift to us, is the heart of our community and service.

St. Katharine Drexel: Apostle to the Oppressed

Katharine was born in 1858 and died in 1955. Within those years her 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.
