The 2016 Cabrini Birthday Benefit took place in Chicago on July 13th. Nearly 200 people gathered to celebrate St. Cabrini. They gave thanks to God for her time on earth and the miracles she continues to work. Though the benefit dinner, which was held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, took place in the middle of a rainstorm, a beautiful rainbow appeared as the weather lightened. Many felt it was a sign from our dear Saint that she was present, ever vigilantly watching over her Shrine and ensuring the benefit’s success.
We are immensely grateful to our event’s Co-Chairs, Kevin and Mary Ellen Connellan, our benefit committee members, sponsors, staff and volunteers who helped to honor St. Cabrini. Their generous contributions and continued support help keep the Shrine a dynamic spiritual center in a city still so much in need of St. Cabrini’s mission and vision. We thank everyone in attendance for their presence and look forward to the 2017 celebration.
