Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament

The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament (SBS) are a Catholic order of nuns in the United States. They were founded in 1891 by Saint Katharine Drexel as the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for Indians and Colored People.

During her life, Saint Katharine used approximately $20 million of her personal fortune to fund SBS-staffed schools for Native Americans and African Americans; her wealth passed on to other charitable organizations following her death, due to a clause in her father's will.

The sisters continue to work in schools and churches in the Black and indigenous communities of the United States.
