Celebrating Mother Cabrini’s birthday in Westchester

Cabrini of Westchester celebrated the 170th birthday of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini with several festive activities for both residents and staff.  A special Mass, with live music, took place in the St. Cabrini Nursing Home Chapel and was televised throughout the nursing home for the residents to participate from their rooms.

A rolling ice cream cart delivered a tasty treat for residents and staff to satisfy sweet cravings!  As an added touch, gift cards were raffled off to staff on each shift from a donation previously given in honor of employees.

A display in the lobby provided everyone the opportunity to give Mother Cabrini a gift on her birthday, either a monetary one or a donation of non-perishable food, which will be delivered to the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry of which many of Cabrini Immigrant Services’ clients benefit.  A box of food was collected and $200.00 in donations were received that will benefit many families in our community.  Thank you to all that participated and contributed to this happy day!
