In honor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s Feast Day on January 4, let this SlideShare presentation help you visualize what it would have been like to live as the first Sisters of Charity did. Imagine the details: sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and feelings. Place yourself in the scene.
Elizabeth Ann Seton had come to Baltimore (Maryland, USA) at the invitation of Reverend William Dubourg, S.S., president of Saint Mary’s College, to open a school for girls. However, a generous act of providence shifted her future activity north to a valley near the rural town of Emmitsburg.
