Restoration of the National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini

The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus have officially announced that the National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini in Chicago, IL will reopen on Sunday, September 30, 2012.  The reopening follows an extensive renovation. Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. will be the presider at the 4:00 P.M. Mass that will mark the Shrine’s reopening.  The restored Shrine and urban garden will offer individuals of all faiths a peaceful sanctuary for prayer, worship, and reflection and an opportunity to learn about Mother Cabrini, the Patron Saint of Immigrants and the first American citizen saint to be canonized.   Mother Cabrini died in Chicago on December 22, 1917.   A video of the National Shrine is available
