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.
The Shrine is a "Must See" and all are welcome to visit and take a self-guided tour or schedule a docent-led group tour. For more information on tours, contact: email@example.com
