Did you know that Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton played a major role in American history?

Growing up in New York City in the late 1700s, Elizabeth Bayley Seton had a front row seat to the beginning of the nation.

Elizabeth herself was instrumental in American history by planting the seeds of Catholicism in the United States. From rural Maryland, she founded the first order of women religious in the United States and opened a school for underprivileged young Catholics.
