Saint Katharine Drexel Feast Day Mass 2018 at Cathedral in Philadelphia
The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, SBS, were joined by some of their Associates, and the public to honor their foundress, St. Katharine Drexel, on her Feast Day, March 3, 2018. A beautiful evening Mass was celebrated by Pastor, Rev. G. Dennis Gill, at the Cathedral Basilica Saints Peter & Paul in Center City Philadelphia.
St. Katharine’s photo was beautifully displayed on the altar surrounded by flowers and candles to remind those in attendance of her saintly virtues and accomplishments. The amazing choir added their voices to make it a very beautiful and joyful celebration.
