Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Feast Day : November 13 -- Our classroom saint.

St. Frances was born in Lombardi, Italy in 1850 to a family with thirteen children. At eighteen, Frances desired to be a nun, but her poor health stood in her way. So she helped her parents until their death, and then worked on a farm with her brothers and sisters.

She was asked by a priest to teach in a girls' school and stayed there for six years. At the request of her Bishop, she founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart to care for poor children in schools and hospitals. Then at the urging of Pope Leo XIII she came to the United States with six nuns in 1889 to work among the Italian immigrants.

Filled with a deep trust in God and endowed with a wonderful administrative ability, this remarkable woman soon founded schools, hospitals and orphanages in this strange land and saw them flourish in the aid of Italian immigrants and children.

When St. Frances died in 1917 her institutes could be found in England, France, Spain, the United States and South America. In 1946, she became the first American citizen to be canonized when she was elevated to sainthood by Pope Pius XII. Due to her work with immigrants, St. Frances is the patroness of immigrants.
