Located in northern Manhattan, St. Frances Cabrini Shrine overlooks the banks of the Hudson River and the neighboring state of New Jersey. The Chapel houses the most precious remains of our beloved St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.
After her death in 1917, Mother Cabrini was buried in West Park, New York. In 1933, her remains were moved to the chapel of Mother Cabrini High School. Following Mother Cabrinis canonization in 1946, there were so many pilgrims coming to pray that a new shrine was built in 1957 on the grounds of Mother Cabrini High School.
Today, the Shrine continues as a center of welcome for new immigrants and pilgrims of many nationalities who come to pray and reflect. Also, the shrine serves the young women attending Mother Cabrini High School as place for their liturgies, special prayer services and a place where they can come, rest, and be nourished.
