About the Event
Tour a national shrine dedicated to the diminutive yet indomitable "CEO" for the Sacred Heart, St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, mother to thousands and a Chicago Saint! In addition, tour the church whose apeal drew her to Chicago, Assumption Catholic Church. Built by Italians and heavily influenced by Italy's finest craftsmen, thier intense love for the Madonna is evident. Then get aquainted with Italy's influence at the longest enduring Italian church in Chicago, now especially dedicated to travelers, the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii.
We will lunch at the two level Italian market Eataly - featuring wines, cheeses, Italian kitchen gizmos, and multiple mouthwatering restaurant options. Lunch on your own. Small shrine museum and gift shop also available.
