Missionary Sisters in NYC in 1890. 

Photo above: 701 Fort Washington Avenue as it looked when Mother Cabrini purchased the property.

Mother Cabrini led an extremely productive life, founding schools, hospitals, dispensaries, and orphanages in nine countries on three continents. The “little nun” (as she called herself) had a single focus: to draw hearts to Jesus.

Her days were a rigorous blend of prayer, work, compassion, and community. The Shrine’s  new exhibit “A Day in the Life of a Saint” explores what Mother Cabrini did when she was in residence at 701 Fort Washington Avenue.

The exhibit includes artifacts, period photos, business documents signed by Mother Cabrini, as well as quotes and a timeline of how she spent her days. All interpretive materials are provided in both Spanish and English.

The exhibit will be here at the Shrine through December, 2022. Stop by!
