  1. This Woodbury University is the former Villa Cabrini Academy, founded by Mother Cabrini.
    It had a Convent, not a Monastery, a Kindergarten, Grade School and High School for Girls Only.
    Villa Cabrini was there from the turn of the 1940’s until the 1970’s. Our family had a home near there for many years. I made my First Communion there in 1954.
    High up on a hill in the Verdugo Mountains, above Villa Cabrini, once stood the Cabrini Chapel visible throughout most of the San Fernando Valley. The chapel is now at the parking lot of St Francis Xavier Church, Burbank.
    Also on the grounds was the Villa Cabrini Church, which still stands. As it should.
    Would not surprise me is that bell tower is still being rung by Mother Cabrini.
    The grounds there are very historic.
