Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament
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. We believe we are called to address the hungers of the world and to share the bread of our lives generously, joyfully and gratefully.
We choose to live simply, in a manner that is counter-cultural and reflective of our interdependence with all creation. Out of our desire to effect unity and community among all peoples, we actively oppose all forms of prejudice, racism and oppression.
We are confident in our God. We are enriched by the spiritualities and cultures of the Black and Native American peoples who have shared their life and love with us in mutual blessing. We are strengthened by our partnerships with others, and live in a spirit of hope, openness and discernment.
Sr. Patricia Suchalski
As Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, we believe God calls us to be a sign in the world of the power of the Eucharistic Christ to effect unity and community among all peoples.
Guided by the spirit of Katharine Drexel, we are called to share the Gospel message with the poor, especially among the Black and Native American peoples and to challenge the deeply rooted injustice in the world today.
Who We Are
Mother Katharine, our foundress, saw the Eucharist as the heart of community and of our apostolate… It is the key to our vocation and the work of our Congregation… Like Mother M. Katharine we realize our ultimate goal is that all peoples be brought into the community of the people of God.
The Motherhouse of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament is in Bensalem, Pa.
