The tomb of St. Katharine Drexel, the second American-born saint to be canonized, was formally installed at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul on Sunday, Nov. 18. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput was the principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass, which drew hundreds of worshipers, including the two children (now adults) who were healed through the miraculous intercession of St. Katharine Drexel.

The saint’s remains had been translated to the Cathedral earlier this year from the Bensalem motherhouse of the religious community she had founded, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. The tomb, funded by a grant from the Connelly Foundation, is located near the Drexel family altar inside the Cathedral’s main entrance.
