Emmitsburg

Almost two centuries later, St. Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton (1774-1821), the first United States born canonized saint, founded the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph's in 1809. Elizabeth planted her small mustard seed in the Valley of Emmitsburg, Maryland and her sisters adopted the rule of Vincent and Louise.

In 1850, thirty years after the death of Elizabeth Seton, the Emmitsburg community formally united with the Daughters of Charity, the international community based in Paris, France.
