St. Katharine Drexel


We are formally beginning a period of prayer—preparing for the arrival of St. Katharine Drexel’s holy relics later in the year (2018).  At the present time, St. Katharine’s body is still interred at the Motherhouse of the Community she founded, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, in Bensalem PA.  Currently, it is not possible to visit her tomb, as preparations are underway for it to be transferred to our cathedral.

The Public Celebration of the Installation of the Tomb of Saint Katharine Drexel will take place on Sunday, November 18, 2018, with the 11:00 AM Solemn Mass at the Cathedral Basilica. 

Please continue to check our website for updates.

St. Katharine Drexel, pray for us!
