“One of America's most beautiful Bascilica”
Completed in 1965, the Basilica was designed as the chapel for the Daughters of Charity in conjunction with the construction of the new Saint Joseph's Provincial House. After Mother Seton's beatification, plans were altered for the chapel to serve as the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who founded the Sisters of Charity of Saint Joseph's in 1809. Today, the Basilica is a testament to the spiritual heritage of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, reminding us of her faithful adherence to God’s will, deep prayer life, devotion to the Eucharist, and love of the Church. In reflection of these aspects of Mother Seton’s spirituality, the Basilica of the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is a place of worship, pilgrimage, evangelization and reconciliation.
