LENTEN LECTURE

The Shrine is pleased to announce a new lecture by Fr. Peter Bernardi, SJ, about the controversy surrounding Pope Pius XII and the new information that is available.  Here is what Fr. Bernardi has to say about this upcoming talk:

"The most controversial modern pope is undoubtedly Pius XII (pope 1939-1958).  Starting five years after his death, he has been repeatedly vilified for his allegedly culpable “silence” during the Holocaust.  In 2020, Pope Francis opened the Vatican ‘secret’ archives on Pius XII to outside researchers.  Last October a special conference in Rome reported on the latest research concerning Pope Pius during the Nazi era.  My presentation will review the so-called “Pius” wars and assess the claim that the pope was a “failure” as a moral leader."

ANNUAL ST JOSEPH TABLE

NEW HELP PAGE FOR IMMIGRANTS AND HOMELESS

The Shrine Outreach Committee is in the process of gathering resources to help the homeless and the many new immigrants find the help that already exists in our city in the areas of Legal Services, Medical Services, Education and more.  Bilingual flyers are now available for you to give to those in need whenever you see them.  We often ask "how can we help".  Hopefully this will be one of the ways.

Here is another way!  Help collect personal care/hygiene items to be distributed by Chicago Street Medicine.  Drop off your donations in the bins in the Shrine lobby. If you prefer to donate money with which we will purchase items:

IN HER WORDS

 

 

CABRINI WORLD NEWS

We are thrilled to share that Sr. Laura Sanchez, MSC, made a lifetime commitment to God and the Church through her Perpetual Vows on Friday, February 2nd, in Lomas de Zamora, Argentina. It takes immense courage to respond to God's calling wholeheartedly, and we are proud of Sr. Laura for taking this step forward.

We pray that she continues to grow in God's grace and serve Him faithfully as a Missionary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us remember that God's grace is abundant and never-ending. He gives us grace upon grace, blessings, and favor.

Congratulations, Sr. Laura! We are journeying with you, sharing in the powerful legacy of Mother Cabrini!

This marks her life's complete and final dedication to God and the Church as a Missionary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Spiritual Center & Architectural Masterpiece in the Heart of Lincoln Park

Historically, this site was home to Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, a missionary woman religious, who helped shape America's social and health care system in the early twentieth century.

Spiritually, it is the only National Shrine dedicated to the first American Citizen Saint and the Patron of Immigrants and Heath Care Workers in the Catholic Church.

Architecturally, the Shrine's Chapel is the masterpiece of world-renowned architect, Leonard Gliatto, who felt that this was his crowning achievement in America.
