History[edit] The Third Plenary Council of Baltimore
Third Plenary Council of Baltimore
(1884), which at the time was the meeting of all Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
bishops in the United States, renewed the vigor for missionary work among the "Colored and Indian races". Archbishop
Archbishop
James O'Connor of Omaha, acting alongside Katharine Drexel, decided, with the approval of Archbishop
Archbishop
P. J. Ryan of Philadelphia, to form a new congregation on behalf of Native Americans and African Americans. The first sisters, including foundress Katharine Drexel, entered religious life under the tutelage of the Sisters of Mercy
Sisters of Mercy
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They were also inspired by O'Connor, who served as Drexel's spiritual director until his death. After completing a two-year novitiate to learn the foundations of religious life and upon first profession of vows, these sisters were clothed in the habit of the new congregation of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament of the Indians and Colored People. Mother Katharine Drexel (now Saint Katharine Drexel) was installed as superior. Since then, the sisters have staffed a number of Catholic schools for Native American and African American children, which involved collaboration with the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions, the Commission for the Catholic Missions among the Colored People and the Indians and other Catholic institutions. Since its founding, the order has been headquartered at St. Elizabeth's Convent

in Cornwells Heights, Pennsylvania.[1] Saint Katharine is entombed there in a crypt in the chapel. The Cornwells Heights location is currently made up of the motherhouse of retired nuns and the location of Saint Katharine Drexel Mission Center and National Shrine. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[2] Mission[edit] The religious institute of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament

Christ to Native Americans and Black Americans through apostolate of prayer and work. References[edit]
