St. Frances Cabrini Shrine featured in the New York Times

Michael Luongo of the New York Times recently wrote a comprehensive account of the restoration project currently underway at the St. Frances Cabrini Shrine in New York City. The article spotlights the Missionary Sisters and features the Shrine as a sacred place of comfort for pilgrims and immigrants.  Luongo points out that details of the mural that had become dull over the years, have now reemerged.
