St. Frances Cabrini Planted Roots in This Once-Remote Corner of Manhattan

Stained glass and a life-timeline mosaic adorn the New York City shrine dedicated to the ‘Patroness of Immigrants.’ Pilgrims can pray before the Blessed Sacrament and before the glass-encased body of the saint, at rest in the reliquary beneath the main altar. Also shown: In an undated photo, Mother Frances Cabrini is seen standing in the back row, beneath the sunflower-shaped ornament on the wall.

New York City shrine reflects property’s holy mission and saint’s Eucharistic and Marian devotion.
