The National Shrine
of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton

In 1809, Elizabeth Ann Seton founded the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph’s in Emmitsburg, Md., the first community for religious women established in the United States. Her legacy now includes religious congregations in the United States and Canada – including many Sisters of Charity – whose members work to address the unmet needs of people living in poverty. Mother Seton was the first citizen born in the United States to be given the title of “Saint.” Her remains are entombed in Emmitsburg in the Basilica at the National Shrine that bears her name.
