Grotto at Saint Francis Medical Center refurbished
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - A piece of hospital history officially returns to Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau on Wednesday, May 31.
Staff members and supporters gathered in the Saint Francis Garden for the unveiling of this newly refurbished grotto.
The Catholic Shrine once stood at the original Saint Francis Hospital on Good Hope Street.
Sister Kevin Karimi, director of Mission Integration, told us how much the unveiling meant to her.
“I am so thrilled. I am so inspired. I’m overwhelmed, as you can tell, I may not even be able to have the right words to speak; however, I am so grateful that this event happened. Be the blessings of our Bishop Edward Rice, who authorized us to move forward with this occasion,” she said.
Kristin Martin, Shawn Houston Role and Jeremy Presley designed and refurbished the grotto for its return to St. Francis.
