Welcome to the Shrine

 

A HIDDEN TREASURE

IN THE HEART OF LINCOLN PARK 

 

Historically, this site was home to Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, a missionary religious woman who helped shape America's social and health care system in the early twentieth century. Mother Cabrini lived, worked and died in Chicago, having established 67 institutions of care around the world.

Spiritually, it is the only National Shrine dedicated to the First American Citizen Saint and the Patron of Immigrants in the Catholic Church. Visitors come from around the world to visit this spiritual center. 

Architecturally, the Chapel is a celebration of Carerra marble, Florentine stained glass windows, gold mosaics, colorful frescoes and Romanesque splendor. 

 

 

"With God, you cannot fail. Many times he knocks on the door of our heart and asks for something in return. The little bit you place in his hands, with a good heart and a pure intention of pleasing him, multiplies to your advantage and benefit. In this way, the spiritual richness of your soul may increase from depriving yourself of the a small satisfaction or a little pleasure for the love of God."

....St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
