  • Beautiful and serene.
  • Wonderful and beautiful shrine dedicated to an amazing Saint. Interested my non-Catholic brother and piqued his interest in the Catholic faith, perhaps with the intercession of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and always from the grace of God. The receptionist at the front desk of the shrine was very kind and we loved hearing her story of how she found the shrine. Please pray for my family's conversion and the conversion of people all around the world, may Almighty God bless you all.
