Here the photos of our Welcome/Thank-you Masses that were held on Saturday, April 13th & Sunday, April 14th.

At both Masses, board members thanked Barb Willis for her 2+ years as interim Executive Director & also welcomed myself as the new Executive Director. After each Mass, a reception was held for the community members to personally meet and thank both Barb & myself.

Our Board Chair, Kathleen Cummings, also shared a wonderful quote:

I could not be more delighted that Laurie is now at the helm of the National Shrine of St. Frances Cabrini. Her strong record of leadership, coupled with her personal connection to Mother Cabrini, makes her its ideal Executive Director. Under Laurie’s leadership, the Shrine is poised to expand its reach and amplify Mother Cabrini’s charism and vision in Chicago and beyond.
