There is a new State holiday in Colorado!
Frances Xavier Cabrini Day will be observed on the first Monday in October beginning this year.
The new, legal holiday was created to replace Columbus Day (second Monday in October).
House Bill 20-1031 created the new holiday and was passed by the legislature on March 10, 2020 and signed into law by Governor Polis on March 20, 2020.
Cabrini Day is the first State paid legal holiday to recognize a woman in the nation.
