I have since visited the Mother Cabrini Shrine up in Washington Heights, located at 701 Fort Washington Ave. (212-923-3536). I had no idea until I accomplished a wee more research that the Saint's body was preserved and on display here. I walked in after attending Mass at St. Elizabeth - they were celebrating the birthday of Mother Cabrini - the church was filled with a Spanish speaking congegration and there was both solemnity as well as celebration in the air.

This is definitely a place you should visit if you are a New York Catholic.

  1. I am glad I chanced upon your site. I have made a firm resolve to visit all the churches listed here within the next few years [ kind of put it in my bucket list...] and hope to bring company along the way. Thanks so much.

  2. I live around.the mother cabrini church . When I went it was the one of the beautiful experiences I've had. It's such a beautiful church and been there so close to the shrine was something that I don't have the words to describe the way I felt. I smiled , I cried it was just amazing!
