Shrine's Mission Statement

Our Mission

The National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini is a Catholic Shrine dedicated to the first American Citizen Saint and Universal Patron Saint of Immigrants. The Shrine is a place of prayer, worship, and devotion; pilgrimage, evangelization, and reconciliation. Located in the heart of culturally diverse Chicago, a city where our Saint lived, worked and died, the Shrine welcomes people of all faiths to be spiritually renewed as we bring about the reign of God in today's world.
