St. Elizabeth Seton Information

​St. Elizabeth Seton

Our Patron Saint




Our patron saint is St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who was born in New York in 1774 to a prominent Protestant family. After her conversion to Catholicism a few years later, she made her first vows as a nun and became known as Mother Elizabeth Seton. She founded the first religious community in America, the Sisters of Charity, in accordance with the ideals of St. Vincent de Paul. She devoted her life to God and was committed to making life better for all humanity.

Elizabeth's life included joy and suffering, wealth and poverty, hard work and the satisfaction of seeing her work improve the lives of many people. She died at the age of 47 but her work continued through the Order she founded.

On September 14, 1975, Pope Paul VI canonized Elizabeth Ann Seton, making her the first native-born American saint. Her feast day is January 4. We feel very honoured to have her as our patron saint.
