Following Mass by Father Joseph Pisaneschi, parishioners of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, Swoyersville, formerly Holy Name/ St. Mary’s/ Holy Trinity, traveled by bus on Wednesday, April 17 for a one-day pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Emmitsburg, Maryland.


Mother Seton was a widow with five children, converted to Catholicism, was a Consecrated Religious, became Superior of an oprphanage. She founded the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph. Upon her death in 1821, she had founded 20 communities which conducted free schools. Mother Seton was canonized in 1975.


Pilgrims prayed at Mother Seton’s tomb, heard a talk on the Basilica by a Sister of Charity, visited the Religious Shop, saw a film and a Power Point presentation on Mother Seton’s life, visited the museum and historic cemetery, traveled to Mount St. Mary’s Seminary University for a tour of the Immaculate Conception Chapel given by Scranton Diocesan Seminarian Jeff Warcha, walked the Lourdes Prayer Grotto and enjoyed dinner at the Cozy Restaurant at nearby Thurmont.
