It was foundress of The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, St. Katharine Drexel, who instilled in her religious order the value of embracing the missionary spirit and responding to the call of God, wherever that may lead.

“I wish to be before You as light as a feather, so that Your breath may carry me where You will.”
– St. Katharine Drexel


As this has been a year of great transition, St. Katharine’s words inspire the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament to allow them to continue their efforts of Empowering Minds; Creating Hope; Building Faith and Seeking Justice through new and existing ministries. You can read and view photos of their various ministries in the color brochure. Just click here or on the brochure graphic to view the pdf file.
