Office Closed – Frances Xavier Cabrini Day
October 5, 2020
The first Monday of October will be Frances Xavier Cabrini Day in Colorado, not Columbus Day. Gov. Jared Polis Friday signed into law House Bill 1031, which renames the holiday after the Catholic nun who started several charitable organizations in Colorado, including the Queen of Heaven orphanage in Denver and a summer camp for girls that is now the home of the Mother Cabrini Shrine. Cabrini Day will be the first paid holiday in the state named after a woman. Eleven states have already changed their Columbus Day holidays.
