What’s Happening At Mother Cabrini Shrine


Starting Saturday May 9, we will follow Jefferson County’s Safer-at-Home Guidelines.

  Our property gate will open with shorter, temporary hours.  The gate to Mother Cabrini Shrine will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

The main chapel will remain closed, and we will keep you posted as to when we will resume Masses again.

Gift shop items are available to purchase through window service at the gift shop entrance.

The grotto chapel will be open for a maximum of 10 people at a time.

Access to the spring water will remain closed. If you would like Holy Water,  you can purchase a Holy Water bottle pre-filled at the gift shop window.

Please practice social distancing, wear your face mask, and help us keep the Shrine safe. We have limited parking during the Safer-at-Home phase. 

Please be aware that if overcrowding becomes an issue, we will have to close the gate until the number of visitors becomes smaller.  

Some Masses are being celebrated at local parishes, and they are still available online through the Archdiocese of Denver’s website.  You can access that list by clicking here.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.  Please pray for Mother Cabrini Shrine and be assured of our continued prayers for you and your family. 

Let’s stay safe and please help us keep the Shrine open by following these guidelines!

Dear Friends,

Mother Cabrini encountered many trials and challenges during her lifetime including war, poverty and disease.  In 1872, smallpox raged through Northern Italy when Mother Cabrini visited the sick until she herself contracted the disease.  She was courageous and bold in serving the needs of the most vulnerable.  Today, her Missionary Sisters and lay collaborators continue in that same spirit to serve the poor, the sick and the most vulnerable around the world.  

At Mother Cabrini Shrine, we remain grounded in our mission while being affected by the coronavirus.  Even though we have had to temporarily close our gift shop and main chapel, we want to stay connected to you and your families.  We want to let you know of our continued prayers and support and we want to share the inspiration and hope we have from the life and faith of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.

Mother’s spirit is always with us here at Mother Cabrini Shrine.  The Shrine will continue to be a safe haven of peace and hope where all are welcome. 

Since we have had to close the main chapel and our gift shop, our income has drastically decreased.  If you are in a position to help, we would greatly appreciate your support as we try to keep the mission of Mother Cabrini alive.  If you wish to donate, please click here.

We, like Mother Cabrini, place our hope and trust in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, intercede and pray for us.

A Prayer for Peace of Mind

Fortify me with the grace of Your Holy Spirit and give Your peace to my soul that I may be free from all needless anxiety and worry.  Help me to desire always that which is pleasing and acceptable to You so that Your will may be my will.  Amen

-St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
