PHILADELPHIA – Ten students from La Salle College High School in Wyndmoor, along with their families, attended a celebratory Mass honoring the 10th anniversary of the canonization of St. Katharine Drexel at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul Oct. 3.
The students were all participants in last summer’s service trip to St. Michael’s Indian School on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. The school was founded by St. Katharine Drexel in 1902, and today remains a bellwether of hope for the people of the Navajo Nation providing an educational opportunity for approximately 400 students in grades kindergarten through 12.
After the Mass, the students had the opportunity to speak with several of the sisters of the Blessed Sacrament who were in attendance, and with Cardinal Justin Rigali, who was interested in hearing more about their trip and Lasallian calling to serve others in such remote and often times forgotten parts of the country.
