Golden Day

At the Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden, Colorado just west of Denver. This is a special place of reflection with several gardens and sweeping views of Denver in the distance and the plains beyond. 

This place was founded by Mother Cabrini, part of a network of hospitals, orphanages and schools serving the poor and immigrants across the earth. Cabrini University came from this tradition.

The Sacred Heart is at the core of the Missionary Sisters’ faith. Mother Cabrini herself more than a century ago laid these stones in the shape of a heart at the top of the mountain. Later the statue would be added. You climb about 375 steps to the top.
