There are many things that I love about St. Katharine Drexel. Most notably was their Youth Group Tailgate event this evening! I brought my freshman along with my elementary aged boys for a fun dinner ...outside, fun scavenger hunt, kids kickball game, cupcake walk, and other activities! The adults and families played kickball while the HS did a couple teen activities! It was so fun to actually socialize with some familiar families and wonderful to meet new families. I love the fellowship this church offers to everyone in our family! Thank you SKD for providing these opportunities for our family! See More

#SaintoftheDay St. Blaise (d. 316 A.D.) was born into a wealthy Christian family in Armenia. He was trained as a physician before becoming a priest, and was fin...ally ordained a bishop. When a wave of Christian persecution began, God instructed St. Blaise to hide in a desert cave. While he was in hiding, birds miraculously brought him food and sick men came to him to be healed. The king's hunters eventually discovered his cave and found it surrounded by a myriad of wild animals who came to the saint to be blessed, with Blaise able to walk freely among them. Recognizing him as the local bishop, the hunters took Blaise into custody. As he went with them he continued to preach and perform miracles along the way: he healed a boy choking to death on a bone, and commanded a wolf to release a captured pig belonging to a poor woman. When Blaise was sentenced to be starved to death, the woman killed her pig to feed St. Blaise in prison. He was eventually martyred under the reign of Licinius, his body torn with wool combs before being beheaded. Blaise is known as the patron saint of throat ailments, physicians, woolcombers, and wild animals. His feast is commemorated with the Blessing of the Throats, and is celebrated on February 3rd. #MorningOffering

#SaintoftheDay St. Brigid of Ireland (451–525 A.D.), Pray for Us!

#SaintoftheDay St. Brigid of Ireland (451–525 A.D.), also known as St. Brigit of Kildare, was born to a pagan Irish chieftain and a Christian slave mother. Bein...g the daughter of a slave woman, she also was a slave, and worked as a dairy maid. She became known for her virtuous life and her charity to the poor. Recognizing her great piety and special graces, a Christian king convinced her father to grant Brigid her freedom. Once free to follow her own course in life, St. Brigid refused marriage, consecrated herself to Christ, and became Ireland's first nun. She also formed Ireland's first convent at Kildare and became its abbess. She went on to found many other religious communities, as well as a School of Art famous for its metal working and illuminated manuscripts. St. Brigid was known for her extraordinary spirituality, even converting her father to the faith after he witnessed her fashioning the sign of the cross from strands of rushes. She was also a contemporary and friend of St. Patrick. When she died, her sisters kept a fire burning in an enclosure at her Kildare convent. This fire burned for centuries, tended by the sisters and not burning out until the 13th century. It was later re-lit and burned for 400 more years until the Protestant revolt. St. Brigid is the patroness of Ireland and many other causes, most notably of dairy and milk maids, chicken farmers, travelers, and sailors. Her feast day is February 1st. #MorningOffering

Congratulations on your new post Dave Kintz, SKD parishioner!! Thank you for your service!

While some would consider it a dream to be able to retire after close to 30 years of hard labor, to see their schedule freed up so they could fish and golf whenever they want or simply kick back and relax, it isn’t for Dave Kintz.
