Description of Tour of the Seton Shrine
Instructor: Diane Bittle
Whether you are interested in history, art, the outdoors or something inspirational, the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton offers a breadth of experiences to discover – some reflective, some intriguing, others inspiring.
Elizabeth Ann Seton was a wife and mother, and then found herself a widow at just 29 years old in 1803. Despite the hardships she faced, she went on to do amazing work, and became the first American saint within the Catholic Church. Her legacy is to help people who live in poverty.
Over the past two years, the Gettysburg campus has attended many activities and presentations on the poverty level that our local students face each day. We will visit the Seton Shrine, the museum, her historic homes, and the Basilica which is dedicated to her. Hopefully what we discover on this visit, we can apply to assisting our students.
This event is intended for Anyone.
