Mother Cabrini Shrine holding capital campaign to fund renovations

Funds will be used to expand chapel and gift shop

Posted

The Mother Cabrini Shrine has launched capital campaign that will be used to renovate and expand the chapel, gift shop and retreat spaces at the shrine.

Officially named the Heart of Jesus Capital Campaign, the campaign is seeking to raise $4.5 million. It has already raised $2.7 million, according to a press release from the shrine.

The shrine is located at 20189 Cabrini Blvd., off of US 40 west of Golden. 

A video on the shrine website explains that work on the shrine's facilities will be divided into multiple phases. The first phase will include the construction of “a new and larger gift shop” on the first floor of the main building at the shrine, which will also incorporate a small café.

Subsequent phases will involve the creation of new seating space in the rear of the chapel that will allow seating in the chapel to be expanded to over 400 people with moveable walls to expose and hide that seating as needed. The project will also involve the addition of 14 additional bathroom stalls, the installation of a new elevator and the construction of a new parking lot with 95 spaces east of the building.

“The Shrine is visited by well over 100,000 visitors annually,” said Sister Roselle Santivasi of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, which maintains the shrine. “The renovations will allow us to better meet the needs of our visitors who come for retreats, to attend mass, and to find solitude and joy in the Shrine's beauty and holiness.”
