Getting to Know the Patron Saint of Immigrants


St. Frances Cabrini is the universal patron saint of immigrants. Why did she come to New York in 1889? Who did she help, and what did she do? This talk and guided tour of St. Frances Cabrini Shrine will introduce you to Mother Cabrini, the first U.S. citizen ever named a saint. You'll learn about life in New York during the late 19th century, the immense challenges faced by Italian immigrants during that time, and what a tiny but strong woman did to change the world for the better.
