This weekend I had a lovely visit to the Shrine of Elizabeth Anne Seton, in Emmitsburg, VA. St Elizabeth Anne Seton is the first American Saint. As a widow she came to the United States with her children. She started a school for girls. It is great to visit this place where she use to teach catechism and attend mass. The favorite spot is now a replica of the Grotto of lourdes.
The tiny original church where she attended mass is still there.
