Contemporary line portrait of a young Katharine Drexel.

Katharine was born in Philadelphia in 1858, to a wealthy family who utilized their substantial fortune to assist those in their neighborhood and beyond. Her father passed away when she was in her mid 20s and she and her sisters inherited what would be the equivalent of nearly 400 million in today’s dollars. The three sisters used their inheritance to support missionaries and build schools with a focus on helping the American Indians and African Americans in the western US.

Katharine also founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and at the time of her death in 1955, she had more than 500 Sisters teaching in 63 schools throughout the country and she established 50 missions in 16 different states.
