St. Paula Frassinetti is an Italian saint in the Roman Catholic Church and foundress of the Congregation St. Dorothea. Frassinetti began her religious work by joining her brother, who was a priest, in teaching and caring for the less fortunate in Quinto, Italy.  Soon other women joined her and in 1835, she created the The Sisters of Saint Dorothy, a religious order whose particular areas of concern in ministry are the poor, women and children. She died on June 11, 1882 after a bout with pneumonia following several strokes.
Her body was found to be incorrupt in 1906.
She was canonized on March 11, 1984 by Pope John Paul II.
