Saint Katharine Drexel Prayer:

Ever loving God, you called Saint Katharine Drexel
to teach the message of the Gospel and

By her prayers and example,
enable us to work for justice
among the poor and oppressed.
Draw us all into the Eucharistic community
of your Church, that we may be one in you.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
