Founded in 1891 by St. Katharine Drexel, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament will celebrate their 125th anniversary on July 9-10 on their Motherhouse grounds, 1663 Bristol Pike in Bensalem.
The public is invited to visit with Sisters. Guests are welcome to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in St. Elizabeth Chapel and visit the Shrine of St. Katharine Drexel.
On July 9, there will be a presentation on Native American music and dance, displays on missions and ministries, a book signing by author Cordelia Biddle and opportunities to meet Robert Gutherman and Amy Wall, recipients of miracles through the intercession of St. Katharine.
On July 10, there will be a Mass, followed by a light reception and a presentation and book signing by author Lou Baldwin.
Activities will begin both days at 10 a.m.
In May, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament announced that they will be selling the property where this event will be held. This celebration could well be one of the last large gatherings on the scenic Motherhouse grounds before they are sold, though no further information about the sale has been released.
