National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini reviews
Definitely need GPS to find the place. Also has limited hours: I had to leave prior to 4 PM. But this modest shrine with authentic memorabilia and relics is worth visiting. The museum is small... more »
Very beautiful church. This is by far one of the most underrated churches in Chicago I just went in here by chance and I was blown away. I had no idea that a hospital was built here in 1920 and the church inside is the original church from the hospital. Amazing history. They also have the actual room where Saint Cabrini died and a few other of her relics. Very important history this is the first American citizen saint. Highly recommend checking this out, maybe even just go here for a mass.
Underrated church in the city. It is astonishing. Must visit if you are in the Lincoln Park area.
