Mother Cabrini Shrine

The Mother Cabrini Shrine is just west of Denver, Colorado. This is a good place for travelers to stop and stretch their legs on their interstate voyage. It is also a popular day trip for people living in Denver. To get to the shrine, take the Morrison exit, and follow the well marked road.

Sainte France X. Cabrini was born in the Lombard Plain of Italy on July 15, 1850. In 1880, she found the sisters of the Sacred Heart. Pope Leo XIII sent her to New York city to work with Italian immigrants, where she established a school and orphanage. In her career, she helped establish 67 houses (including schools, orphanages and hospitals). In the first 25 year of her order, 100,000 people were treated at her hospitals.

This area was originally established as a orphanage. In 1912, Mother Cabrini and children from the orphanage formed a heart of stone and cross at the present day statue. On their way down, they discovered a spring at the Grotto which flows to this day. Many people make pilgrimages to view the shrine and drink the water from the spring.
