What is Safeguarding All of God’s Family?
All efforts and programs in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee that relate to protecting God’s children and creating a safe environment come under the umbrella of Safeguarding All of God’s Family. As a faith-filled people, we respect and value each and every individual, as we are created in the image and likeness of God. This is why the Safeguarding All of God’s Family program has been established. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is committed to creating a safe environment where all of God’s family – children, their parents and relatives, parish and school personnel, volunteers, clergy and archdiocesan central office personnel − will be able to work, live, and play in an environment where healthy and responsible relationships prevail.
St. Katharine Drexel Parish was formed in 2003 from the merger of three parishes: St. Michael (Madison St.), St. Patrick (Maple Ave.) and St. Peter (Spring St.) St. Katharine Drexel was born into a wealthy family in Philadelphia, but had a great love for the poor, especially Native Americans and African Americans. She founded the religious order Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and died in 1955. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II on October 1, 2000. Her feast day is March 3rd.

Our Patron Saint
Our school's patron saint is Saint Katharine Drexel, an American woman who dedicated herself to Christ and service to his people. Katharine was canonized on October 1, 2000, by Pope John Paul II in Saint Peter's Square, Vatican City, at the solemn celebration of Mass, where the Pope pro-claimed Mother Katharine Drexel, "Saint Katharine Drexel!"
"Nothing happens by chance."
-- Saint Katharine Drexel
