Even through moments of depression and despair, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton demonstrated strength and courage.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and I have a few things in common. We were both born in New York City and raised two “saucy” boys, though in addition she raised three girls. Also like me, Elizabeth was social, loved to dance, and was good at organizing. She even helped arrange President George Washington’s first inaugural ball in 1789, which was held in New York.
