During their visit to the United States, the MSC General Superior and General Councilors had the opportunity to also visit the National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini of Chicago. 

The staff of the Shrine welcomed them on Monday March 20th. They shared a prayerful, inspirational, and delightful evening together with Shrine Board Members, staff, and supporters. Barbara Willis, Interim Executive Director of the Shrine said: “They toured the Shrine, talked with us; and most of all, inspired us. It was reminiscent of Mother Cabrini at work!”

Also at the Shrine, on the day before, Feast of Saint Joseph, after 10am Mass, they celebrated a centuries’ old Italian tradition, their first Saint Joseph Table.  It was a table full of special bread and treats surrounded by Saint Joseph.  The Rector of the Shrine, Rev. Ramil Fajardo, J.C.L., lead the participants in giving thanks for thir bounty.  They had over 100 people attend this special event, that was planned by a group of very committed volunteers. 

Thanks to Barbara Willis for this sharing.
