“God has done it all: I have only been a spectator of God’s work.”

— St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

In 1890, St. Cabrini and the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus had to beg for alms to support the growing number of orphans in their care. Young women soon offered their help and some asked to join the institute. 125 years later, St. Cabrini still needs your help

The Cabrini Shrine is adjacent to Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters.

“The Cabrini Shrine is located in the Hudson Heights neighborhood of Washington Heights, New York City. Adjacent to the shrine lies Fort Tryon Park, a creation of philanthropist John D. Rockefeller on the site of the famous Battle of Fort Washington during the American Revolutionary War. Inside the park lies The Cloisters, an acclaimed museum in connection to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, that houses European medieval architecture and art. The museum has a large collection of 12th century stained glass as well as famous paintings like Robert Campin’s Mérode Altarpiece (c. 1422).


Fuentidueña Chapel: A twelfth-century apse from this Spanish Chapel loaned to the Cloisters by the Spanish government. A magnificent twelfth-century painted Spanish wood crucifix hangs from the arch.
