Follow in the footsteps of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton

Elizabeth Bayley was born of a well-to-do family in 1774 and baptized in the Episcopal Church. After the death of her husband, William Magee Seton, and her subsequent conversion to Catholicism, Elizabeth was no longer accepted in her previous social and family circles, leaving her a poor widow with five young children. At the invitation of Bishop Carroll, Elizabeth relocated her family to Baltimore, where she founded a school. She was soon joined by other women and formed the Daughters of Charity of Saint Joseph, serving as the first superior of that order. By the time of her death in 1821, Mother Seton’s community had established schools and orphanages in North America, South America, and Italy. Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton was canonized by Pope Paul VI in 1975.


Serve God always

Knowing wealth but no stranger to poverty, devoted spouse and mother, committed religious, generous heart—Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton has become a model of sanctity to people in all walks of life in America and throughout the world.


Sister Betty Ann McNeil, D.C., is the archivist for the Province of Emmitsburg, and has been a Daughter of Charity since 1965.

Profile
Born into a wealthy and influential Episcopalian family, the daughter of a Dr Richard Bayley, Elizabeth was raised in the New York high society of the late 18th century. Her mother died when Elizabeth was three years old, her baby sister a year later. She married the wealthy businessman William Magee Seton in 1794 at age 19, and was the mother of five.

About ten years into the marriage, William's business failed, and soon after he died of tuberculosis, leaving Elizabeth an impoverished widow with five small children. For years Elizabeth had felt drawn to Catholicism, believing in the Real Presence in the Eucharist and in the lineage of the Church going back to Christ and the Apostles. She converted to Catholicism, entering the Church on 14 March 1805, alienating many of her strict Episcopalian family in the process.

To support her family, and insure the proper education of her children, she opened a school in Boston. Though a private and secular institution, from the beginning she ran it along the lines of a religious community. At the invitation of the archbishop, she established a Catholic girl's school in Baltimore, Maryland which initiated the parochial school system in America. To run the system she founded the Sisters of Charity in 1809, the first native American religious community for women.

Died
4 January 1821 in Emmitsburg, Maryland of natural causes
