STATUE HONORING MOTHER CABRINI PART OF THE COLUMBUS DAY FLOAT SPONSORED BY THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN

 

The Diocese of Brooklyn featured a Mother Cabrini statue aboard their float today at the 2019 New York City Columbus Day Parade in Manhattan.

 

The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn rode on the float, boarding in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

 

Mother Cabrini recently received the most nominations in the “She Built NYC” competition, which aims to build more statues honoring women. But despite earning this top ranking, a public statue honoring her life was not chosen as part of the City’s current plans.

 

Today, Governor Cuomo announced his support for a new memorial to honor Mother Cabrini; a State Commission that will work with the Columbus Citizens Foundation, the Diocese of Brooklyn and others to site and fund the new statue.

 

“I welcome the assistance the Governor is promising in erecting a statue for Mother Cabrini, which we hope is a monument to her for her work on behalf of immigrants. We will work with Governor Cuomo’s office to make it happen,” said Bishop DiMarzio.

BROOKLYN AND QUEENS FAITHFUL KEEP HOPE ALIVE FOR MOTHER CABRINI STATUE

 

The Diocese of Brooklyn today is announcing that Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio and the Italian Apostolate of the Diocese of Brooklyn, will host a procession and Mass this Sunday, October 6, 2019, starting at 3 PM, in support of the construction of a public statue recognizing Mother Cabrini as part of the “She Built NYC” program.

 

The procession will begin at 3 PM in Mother Cabrini Park, located at 41 President Street in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn. The procession will continue to Sacred Hearts – St. Stephen Church located at 125 Summit Street, where Mass will begin at 4 PM.

 

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the Patron Saint of Immigrants, arrived in New York in 1889 with the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Mother Cabrini Park is located at the former site of a church building where Mother Cabrini first ministered to the poor immigrants of the Italian community.

 

“Mother Frances Cabrini was certainly one of the women who built New York City. Her work to establish orphanages, schools, and a hospital, along with her commitment to immigrants, absolutely should be recognized. The failure to honor Mother Cabrini with a public statue would be an affront to many New Yorkers, especially Italian-Americans, who see her as most deserving,” said the Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn.
