BENEFITING: In My Brothers Shoes
We've raised just under our $60,000 goal. We need $2000 more to help us complete post-production in order to premier our film in December, the 100th anniversary date of Mother Cabrini's entrance into eternal life. A portion of monies raised as a result of the film will benefit the National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini in Chicago, where Mother Cabrini ministered to children, the poor, those requiring medical help, and immigrants adapting to life in a new land. Filmmaker Lucia Mauro presents a living portrait of the Italy-born saint that showcases her relevance in an ever-changing world. The Patron Saint of Immigrants and Hospital Administrators is explored as a fearless, roll-up-her-sleeves woman who, despite frail health, traveled the world at the turn of the 20th century to serve the less fortunate. It shows the environment in Lombardy, Italy that shaped her compassionate vision and includes interviews with individuals from all walks of life, who carry on Mother Cabrini's work today as the needs of immigrants and other populations continue to evolve. This broadcast-quality documentary is being be produced, with plans to be marketed to television stations, placed upon video media platforms, sold in merchandise outlets and distributed as a family-oriented educational material. The First 1,000 donors’ names, subject to approval; minimum $15 donation, with donations submitted by the production deadline; will appear within the documentary credits, in multiple column form, organized by general donation level categories with larger donors receiving larger print and possibly more screen time. Donations are tax deductible. Please list your first and last name as you wish it to appear in the documentary credits when making your donation or indicate if you wish to remain anonymous.

From the golden entry doors of a high-rise condominium building, one would never imagine there is a Chapel inside that seats over 400 hundred visitors. The Shrine contains the chapel, a garden, spacious lobby, and exhibit rooms including a re-creation of the room where St. Frances Xavier Cabrini died while preparing Christmas candy treats for children. The National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini is located at 2520 N. Lakeview Avenue in one of Chicago’s most bustling neighborhoods, Lincoln Park. People of all faiths are invited and welcome to visit the National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini. Please refer to the National Shrine website for information about the Shrine's artifacts and other Centenary event details: https://www.CabriniNationalShrine.org In My Brothers Shoes Chicago-based filmmakers Joe Orlandino and Lucia Mauro founded In My Brother's Shoes, Inc., a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, in 2014 in conjunction with their Vatican Film Festival award-winning short film of the same title. The organization addresses through film the many forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, which includes military veteran’s issues, cancer research and spiritual renewal.
