Great motorcycle ride, lots to see, even get some exercise climbing up to the top, about 200 steps, thereabouts! On a clear day, awesome view! Watch out for wildlife here, the pretty much have the run of the place, pretty tranquil, afterall, it is a shrine! You can even fill your water jugs from the very spring well that the... More

I have visited her school and chapel for orphans in NYC, and appreciated the visit in Colorado. As others have said, peaceful, prayerful, an important part of the history of the United States. Go when you need a reprieve, and sanctuary from the daily grind. Appreciate breathtaking vistas.

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
