The story how this shrine came about is so interesting and worth the read. As you climb 373 steps to the top, you are able to pray the Stations of the Cross. The view is spectacular and the large statue of Jesus at the top that can be seen for miles is beautiful. The shrine is also known for many... More

We saw the sign for this when going to grave of buffalo bill...it is right down the road. If you are hardly, there is an enormous statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus atop a hill...or you can sit on benches in the gardens at the base of the hill and see it. There is a chapel shrine to Mother... More

We were in Denver to visit our children who live there.....while they were taking us to see the grave of Buffalo Bill I saw the sign for the Mother Cabrini Shrine.....what a great find. The ride up to the shrine which is on top of a mountain was breathtaking. The shrine and gardens were a super surprise. We visited the... More

This was my Great-Grandmother's favorite place when she came from Italy to live in America. It too is my favorite place. It is a spiritual place for me. I have always loved the Mother Cabrini Shrine since I was a child. I have also went to Easter service here. I also like their gift shop and the staff is always... More

This was an unexpected treat. On a whim, we went to see this shrine to Mother Cabrini. We knew very little of her before this visit, but now feel like she is an old friend. The chapel and the grounds were truly inspirational, to even non-Catholics. Nearly 600 acres were purchased by her long before this area was a hot... More

And in the rock hills. A lovely site to experience. It's easy to find and worth the stop. So much beauty in that part of Colorado.

As a Catholic, I have been to other shrines. I'm not really a shrine kind of girl, but always touched by the demonstration of faith exhibited by pilgrims. It's quite a climb, but worth it. Study the story of Mother Cabrini and her service to the poor. She, in her time, and the sisters of her religious order make a... More

On 1993, in preparation of the World Youth Day some young people from Codogno (Lodi dioceses) were invited to the Mother Cabrini Shrine to stay in one of the places Santa Francesca Saverio lived. I was one of them. Words cannot express the glory and the peaceful this place inspires. We came back then in 1994 for the Statue's ceremony... More

Mother Cabrini led a life devoted to others. I learned much more than I ever knew about her. The grounds, chapel, 373 step stairway of prayer to the statue the Scared Heart of Jesus (you can skip your gym visit to the Stairmaster if you go to the top!), gift shop, spring and grotto were all worth seeing. If you're... More

As her towering shrine atop a Colorado mountain, a few miles outside Golden, attests, Mother Cabrini was among the remarkable intrepid women religious who trekked across country more than 100 years ago to minister to immigrant miners, Indians & orphans; Saint Katharine Drexel was another. At this remote shrine & chapel (with an interesting book/gift shop), the visitor senses the... More
