St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s decision to enter the Catholic faith was heroic and extraordinary. She faced many hardships and encountered hostility from family and friends. As a prominent Episcopalian woman of New York society, at a time when Catholics were a primarily lower class, immigrant community, she took a big risk to convert to Catholicism.
