The shrine was located at the heart of Lincoln Park's Columbus Hospital for 47 years. In 2002, when the hospital was torn down, the shrine and Mother Cabrini's room were conserved. After a complete renovation directed by Sullivan, Goulette and Wilson, the shrine reopened in 2012. The chapel is an architectural gem of gold mosaics, Carrara marble, frescoes and Florentine stained glass. It is now surrounded by Lincoln Park 2550, a luxury condominium development built on the former site of Columbus Hospital. The National Shrine functions as a stand-alone center for prayer, worship, spiritual care and pilgrimage.
Visit the shrine--hidden in the massive Lincoln Park 2550 complex-- with its stunning chapel, courtyard and museum space. Volunteers and exhibits will provide visitors with information about Mother Cabrini, how the architecture of the Shrine relates to her life in Chicago, and the mission of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.
