We pray that you and your loved ones are doing well despite the challenging pandemic related circumstances. As you may have seen, Cardinal Cupich recently shared a multi-phased plan for reopening Worship opportunities in the Archdiocese of Chicago. The following phases pertain to the Shrine:

  • Phase 1A allows the Shrine to reopen for private prayer with a limit of 10 attendees.

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.
