Sisterhood of Saints: Katharine Drexel

November 26, 1858–March 3, 1955 The wealthy Drexel family of Philadelphia was socially conscious, donating large amounts of money to help the less fortunate. Indeed, three days a week, Katherine’s stepmother would welcome people in need into their home; there was plenty of food, clothing, and financial aid to share, and Katharine and her two sisters would teach the children about Jesus.
