Saint of the week: Saint Katharine Drexel 

St. Katharine Drexel is the second American-born saint to be canonized by the Catholic Church. She had a passionate love for God and neighbor, and she took an avid interest in the material and spiritual well-being of black and native Americans. Taking the name Mother Katharine, she established a religious congregation called the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for Indians and Colored, whose members would work for the betterment of those they were called to serve. From the age of 33 until her death in 1955, St. Katherine Drexel dedicated her life and her fortune to this work. In 1915, Katherine founded Xavier University in New Orleans, the first Catholic University in the United States for African-Americans. By the time of her death, she had more than 500 Sisters teaching in 63 schools throughout the country and she established 50 missions for Native Americans in 16 different states. Katharine is the patron saint of racial justice and philanthropists. Her feast day is celebrated on March 3.
