Scott LoBaido Mother Cabrini Statue

**Update:  Due to a family health issue, Scott is postponing his Cabrini Statue project.  No donations from this campaign were spent and all donations will be returned according to GoFundMe protocol.  In order to get it back to GoFundMe and then returned, it may take a short while, however to our understanding, it should be back to your accounts sometime in January.  We want to thank you very much for your generous acts and support in this project.  We hope to have it come to fruition very soon.   

Scott will be submitting his design to the Governor's competition since it is actually moving faster than expected.  Stay Tuned!

Thank you!




New Yorkers can not wait that long for this Statue dedication to a true New York hero.

We can do this quickly with private funds and get it created to a 12 ft high bronze in about 6 - 8 months.

Saint France Xavier Cabrini
(July 15, 1850 - December 22, 1917)

Italian-American Roman Catholic nun, who founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a Catholic religious institute that was a major support to the Italian immigrants to the United States.  She was the first naturalized citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, on July 7, 1946.

Patriot Artist, Scott LoBaido, long noted for his Americana artwork, creating sculptures and installations celebrating and elevating the human condition.
