Have you thought about how you can be a part of Seton Heritage Ministries?
Today, through your generosity and the important role you play, Seton Heritage Ministries is continuing the work of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. We envision her Shrine as a holy retreat, where pilgrims by the thousands will have their hearts lifted in this "Valley of Blessings," their faith nourished, and their spirits rejuvenated. Taking our cue from St. Elizabeth’s desire to serve the Church and her people, we seek to offer a rich sacramental life at the Basilica; retreats and workshops for the faithful; educational exhibits and programs; as well as an enriching atmosphere for the Shrine’s many pilgrims.
We want you to be a part of the Seton Heritage Ministries –- make a difference today by using St. Elizabeth Ann’s legacy as a roadmap!
