Holy Name Cathedral to Celebrate the Life & Legacy of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Mother Cabrini, the first United States citizen to be declared a saint, worked tirelessly on behalf of her fellow Italian immigrants, opened schools, hospitals, and orphanages in Chicago and across the United States.

“During her time in Chicago, Mother Cabrini would come to Holy Name Cathedral to pray and it is an honor for her statue to be here, in the heart of the city she loved, for all to visit,” said Sakowicz. “Her missionary spirit and message are just as timely today as when she was tirelessly working for immigrants and the needy. We continue her legacy of welcoming and supporting those seeking new opportunities, safety, care and hope.”
