St. Karen, or Karin, is the Swedish translation for St. Catherine of Sweden. She was one of the eight children of St. Brigid of Sweden. St. Karen (Catherine) married Eggard von Kurnin and the couple took a vow of chastity. When her husband died in 1350, Karen traveled with her mother for twenty-five years. She returned to a monastery in Sweden after St. Brigid died, and in 1380, she joined the Salvatorian Order, the Brigittines.
The St. Karen Sterling Silver Medal honors her as the Patron Saint of miscarriages. Her Feast Day is March 24.
