Among supporters and staff of Mother Cabrini Shrine, Auxiliary Bishop James Conley, center, raises a glass of water from its blessed spring Sept. 9 in Golden.
Some 400 people participated in a vocations walk, lunch and Mass—sponsored by the Knights of Columbus—to recognize the 100-year anniversary of the spring that was discovered in 1912 by Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini and her founding order’s nuns.
"It was a beautiful liturgy and we had a good crowd come for the anniversary," said Jeff Lewis, administrator of the shrine.
