Mother Cabrini Statue in Rochester's Little Italy

Nov 26, 2019 209

With this important fundraising  initiative, we're raising funds to create and install a permanent statue of Mother Cabrini in Rochester's "Little Italy Historic District" on Lyell Avenue. The Lyell corridor is one of Rochester's oldest immigrant's corridors. For over 150 years, the area has served as an inclusive and welcoming place of first entry for many Italian immigrants, and for immigrants  of all cultures, as they first settled in the Greater Rochester area.

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, ("Mother Cabrini"), is the Patron Saint of all immigrants to the United States.  She was the first American citizen to be canonized, and she dedicated her life to serving and protecting immigrants, children and families of all cultures.
