All funds raised will go towards the memorial for Father McCabe, who is buried in the hamlet of St. Mary, on the outskirts of Waseca, Minnesota, where he fled to from Australia—with the help of Archbishop John Ireland (from Burnchurch, County Kilkenny)—and became the parish priest for mainly Irish immigrant farmers.
The unveiling of the memorial stone and
commemoration will take place on
May 18, 2019
at St. Mary, Waseca.
