New Yorkers are being urged to vote for Mother Cabrini in a citywide campaign called “She Built NYC!” It honors the great women who helped build the Big Apple. Currents News Tim Harfmann has the story. If you want to nominate her, go to: But you’ll need the following information… After arriving in the U.S. from Italy in 1889, Saint Mother Frances Cabrini lived in Brooklyn and did so much by creating schools, hospitals, and supporting immigrants. She died in 1918. Voting ends on Wednesday, August 1st.
