Mother Cabrini Way

A street in Manhattan today has been named in honor of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, Patroness of Immigrants, and the first American saint in the Roman Catholic Church. The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (MSC)and the Cabrini Mission Foundation led the ceremony, unveiling the co-naming of East19th Street at 3rd Avenue “Mother Cabrini Way.” 

New York Councilwoman Rosie Mendez said, “We must remember the work of Mother Cabrini, and try to model her humanity.” Pietrina Raccuglia, MSC Provincial, stated that today we are “honoring a woman who contributed a great deal to the world, taking care of those most in need.” 

Mother Cabrini passed away 100 years ago this December. The order she founded has established schools and hospitals on 6 continents. Among the educational institutions is Cabrini University in Radnor, PA. #CabriniUniversity #CabriniMissionFoundation

The Answer to Domestic Violence

Cabrini University tonight formally launched the Barbara and John Jordan  Center for Children of Trauma and Domestic Violence Education. #theanswer This Center, led by Colleen Lelli, PhD, is born out of a decade of scholarly and field work to educate others on the damaging impact of trauma, and the effective role of teachers in preventing domestic violence and trauma. 

Lynn Rosenthal, of the Biden Foundation, speaking at the event, called on Cabrini to become a national leader in this effort.  Barbara Jordan said Cabrini is creating pathways of peace, and, referring to the framed poster, that the Center “has brought meaning and passion to these words.”

Lynn Rosenthal declared Barbara and John Jordan a national treasure;  President Donald Taylor praised them for their incredible impact.
