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

What a beautiful peaceful place. Went in the gift shop and bought some items. Met one of the sisters that worked there, she gave us lots of info on the shrine. Lots of walking, but so worth it. The views are amazing.

The shrine was recommended by a friend and was a short drive from Denver. A beautiful view and pew full setting. A very nice "garden" area with the stations of the cross and seating for either just a rest or some meditation. The actual shrine is almost 400 steps up the side of a hill that is a challenge unless... More

Went with our daughters school to the shrine. Wasn't expecting much. Wasn't until I got there that I realize just how large the shrine wall. Impressive. Loads of steps, but worth the climb to stand at the base of the Shrine and take in the view. Don't miss the chapel near the base.

After we had toured the Coors Brewery in Golden, we saw a sign to the Mother Cabrini Shrine. We decided to go have a look. High on a hill, with Denver to the East is the Shrine to this humble Nun, who became a saint. I had never heard of Mother Cabrini. She was born in Italy, came to America,... More

As you travel west on I-70 you can spot a large statute of Jesus on a hill top. I encourage you to take the time to visit the Mother Cabrini Shrine. It is a serene and beautiful place. Mother Cabrini was an Italian nun who came to the US to visit Italian miners and their families in the Clear Creek,... More

We visited this after touring the Phoenix Silver Mine in Idaho Springs. I had seen the Jesus statue from the highway and had been curious for a while. This is a really lovely trip for believers. The steps looked really daunting but there are benches every 10 or so steps so you can rest on the way and I think... More

I first came here as a little girl living in Denver, almost 50 years ago. I wanted to stop because it was a childhood memory of walking all those steps with my Busia and family. It still has "all those steps." Unfortunately, we came late in the afternoon and the museum and gift shop were closed. It was a beautiful... More
