Highlighting our Associates

We want to honor the hard work and prayers of our Associates of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. They are truly living out the mission of St. Katharine Drexel and spreading the Good News of Jesus all across the country.

At the University Catholic Center at UCLA, Carole Blanks, ASBS and Francine Feggans, ASBS participate in a yearly event to speak to college students about the ASBS ministry, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, and St. Katharine Drexel.

Emily Milner, ASBS is our oldest Associate, now 103 years old. This photo was taken on her 100th birthday. Through her 90s, she volunteered at the shrine in Atlanta, where she taught visitors about St. Katharine Drexel.

The Los Angeles ASBS Faith Community contributes food to St. Agatha Church Food Pantry, prepares meals for the homeless on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and donates clothing and toiletries.

Here are the ASBS in New Orleans participating in a retreat. They begin each day by praying a Novena prayer and meditating on a reflection. On Thursdays, they pray the rosary together on Zoom.

Carol and Louis Gaignard are very active in New Iberia. Carol has been the editor of the ASBS Newsletter for 15 years and Louis helps with the mailings. Their main ministry has been operating the St. Vincent de Paul Center, where they recently received special recognition for their work and had a building named after them.
