The annual Mother Cabrini Shrine Gala raises funds for the maintenance and operations of the Shrine. Over the past fifteen years, some of the projects the gala has funded include: new carpet, a new roof and air conditioning in the chapel, renovations of the retreat facilities and gift shop, repaving of the road and the construction of the Meditation and Cabrini Gardens. Recently, we refurbished an old pump house in the Cabrini Gardens and turned it into a museum in honor of Mother Cabrini. The Shrine is self-supporting and does not receive any outside funding. Our one million dollar budget is met by retreat fees, gift shop sales, donations, direct mail campaigns and our annual gala fundraiser. Your support is greatly appreciated!

We celebrate the Feast of St. Frances Cabrini on November 13. Her birthday is July 15 and she was cononized July 7, 1946. We always celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which is 19 days after Pentecost Sunday.
Earlier this year, the Colorado Legislature passed Frances Xavier Cabrini House Bill 20-1031 into law, establishing Frances Xavier Cabrini Day as a Colorado State Holiday. The first paid state holiday in the nation that recognizes a woman, Cabrini Day will be observed in Colorado annually on the first Monday in October. (October 5, 2020)
Mother Cabrini dedicated her life to helping the poor, the sick, immigrants and those less fortunate. Her story is rich with determination, grit and an unshakable faith in the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This day is about her story and we are eager for people to learn of it and be inspired by her life and all she accomplished.
As we celebrate this inaugural Frances Cabrini Day during this time of the COVID pandemic, we are committed to following Jefferson County and the state of Colorado’s Safer-At-Home guidelines. We ask that visitors practice safe social distancing and wear a mask. There is limited capacity within our buildings and chapels and there are sign up requirements for Sunday Masses. We are working hard to keep the Shrine safe and open so that we can continue to welcome all who come to Mother Cabrini Shrine. Due to Covid, there are no formal activities planned at Mother Cabrini Shrine on Cabrini Day 2020.
