Addabbo comments on Mother Cabrini receiving a statue in her honor

“As President of the Italian-American Legislators Conference, I believe that on a day in which we acknowledge the positive contributions of Italians, it is only fitting to honor Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini with a statue within the five boroughs,” State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. said. “As the first U.S. citizen to be canonized as a saint, Mother Cabrini, is rightfully recognized for all her New York efforts towards immigration, children, orphanages and hospitals.”
