Overview

On June 16, 1808, Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton arrived at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore on the same day that Bishop John Carroll, the first bishop in the United States, dedicated the seminary's newly built chapel. Elizabeth came to Baltimore from New York to start a boarding school for girls. During her one-year stay in what is now the Mother Seton House, she took the vows of a Daughter of Charity, thus cementing her conversion and commitment to Catholicism.
