About the Gift Shop

image description

Our Gift Shop is located in the Mission Center of the National Shrine of St. Katharine Drexel in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Funds generated by sales help support the Sisters who have dedicated their lives to serving the poor and oppressed.

The Gift Shop carries various religious items as well as items hand-made by a group of very dedicated women. Most unique are the dolls dressed as Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament – the order begun by St. Katharine Drexel to serve the Blacks and Native Americans in the United States. The SBS habits are quite authentic despite their small size!

Rwandan wood sculptures, carved by skilled artisans from the Central African Country, are on display in the Gift Shop. The purchase of one of these items helps relieve the poverty by which the sculptors and their families are surrounded.

We do have more items than are shown online – why not come for a visit?
