Before she was married her name was Elizabeth Ann Bayley ( her name before she married) had worked for charitable institutions in New York.  She then changed her religion to Catholicism after she had traveled to Italy in 1803, accompanied by her husband.  Saint Elizabeth ran a lot of educational resources for girls and boys. She was also the founder of Sisters of Charity.

Sisters of Charity dedicate their lives just to help the poor and Mother Mary. The Sisters of Charity try to encourage people to live a spiritual life. These women work very hard each day of their lives to help those in need.

Elizabeth Ann’s husband was William Magee Seton. He was a wealthy businessman. He was named after his father, William Seton. Elizabeth had six children, one daughter and five sons.She died on January 4, 1821 and was canonized in 1975. Saint Elizabeth was kind and caring, especially the poor.
