HELPING THE RECENT IMMIGRANTS
In the spirit of Mother Cabrini, and in support of the City of Chicago's efforts to help immigrants who have arrived, and will continue to arrive here, the Shrine will be collecting items to help with their daily needs. You may drop off items in the narthex and we will transport them to various aldermanic drop-off points on an ongoing basis. Click the picture of Mother Cabrini to get the current list of items requested by the city. NOTE: items must be new, and no food is being collected.
Two loads have already been taken to the alderman's office. Thank you for your generosity!! We will keep up this initiative as needed indefinitely.

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.
