America's First Catholic Saint
Mother Cabrini was born in Italy on July 15, 1850. Thirty years later, she founded the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. In the early 1900s she was sent to America by Pope Leo XIII, where she established her first school and orphanage in New York City among Italian and other immigrants. In 1902 she continued her mission in Colorado with the establishment of a Denver orphanage.

In 1910, Mother Cabrini's order acquired a farming property on Lookout Mountain and built another orphanage.

In 1912, Mother Cabrini and children from the orphanage climbed a nearby hill and built a simple heart and cross out of stones (it is still there, in the tear shaped pool.) On their way down, they discovered a spring which flows to this day.

Mother Cabrini died in Chicago, Illinois 1917 at 67 years of age and was canonized on July 7, 1946.

The St. Frances Cabrini Shrine Committee, incorporated in April 1948, erected a 22-foot statue of Christ – mounted on an 11-foot base – at the original location of the stone heart and cross.

For Denver area Catholics (and even a few Protestants) the shrine serves as a spiritual sanctuary away from the noise, congestion and traffic of the Denver Metro Area.
