St. Elizabeth Ann Seton – 4 January

On the feast day of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, I post a photo of the house on Paca Street, Baltimore, where she made first profession of vows as a Daughter of Charity and opened a boarding school for girls.  This was shortly after she, having been raised Episcopalian in New York, was received into full communion in the Catholic Church.  More information can be found here.

This house is a couple of blocks south of Mount Calvary Catholic Church, which was founded as an Episcopal parish in 1842 in line with the Oxford Movement.  Like Mother Seton, Mount Calvary entered into full communion with Rome.  This took place in 2012.
