      • “Fatima Children” for young girls between seven and eleven years of age, which meets weekly

  • Youth Group: “Duc in Altum”

Our Patron
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917)
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini was born in Lombardy, Italy in 1850. She founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 1880 in Codogno, Italy. Under the encouragement of Pope Leo XIII, she set out for the United States in 1889, where, for the next twenty-years, she established many schools, hospitals and orphanages. Her missionary zeal also led her to South America where she founded schools in Argentina, Brazil and Nicaragua and elsewhere. Mother Cabrini died in Chicago on December 22, 1917, and on July 7, 1946 she became the first United States citizen to be canonized. Buried in Upper Manhattan upon her own request, she is the Universal Patroness of Immigrants.
