This St. Frances Cabrini Icon shows a women who came to America in the late 19th century and founded schools, hospitals, and orphanages among the growing number of Italian immigrants. In 1946, she became the first American citizen to be canonized when she was elevated to sainthood by Pope Pius XII. She is the patron saint of immigrants. These saint icons make wonderful Catholic gifts for anyone who has immigrated from another land. We encourage you to explore all of the icons of Women Saints at Monastery Icons.
St. Frances came to America in the late 19th century and founded schools, hospitals, and orphnages among the growing number of Italian immigrants. In 1946, she became the first American citizen to be canonized when she was elevated to sainthood by Pope Pius XII. She is the patron saint of immigrants.
St. Frances was born in Lombardi, Italy in 1850, one of thirteen children. At eighteen, she desired to become a Nun, but poor health stood in her way. She helped her parents until their death, and then worked on a farm with her brothers and sisters.
One day a priest asked her to teach in a girls' school and she stayed for six years. At the request of her Bishop, she founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart to care for poor children in schools and hospitals. Then at the urging of Pope Leo XIII she came to the United States with six nuns in 1889 to work among the Italian immigrants.
Filled with a deep trust in God and endowed with a wonderful administrative ability, this remarkable woman soon founded schools, hospitals, and orphanages in this strange land and saw them flourish in the aid of Italian immigrants and children. At the time of her death, at Chicago, Illinois on December 22, 1917, her institute numbered houses in England, France, Spain, the United States, and South America.
