Enroll Your Loved Ones in Our Prayer Offering on the Feast of the Assumption of Mary

In celebration of the Feast Day of the Assumption of Mary, honor your loved ones by enrolling them in a special prayer offering.


August is the month of heaven. That’s because of the feast day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Heaven is the message of this feast — and heaven is the hope of Christians who celebrate it.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton embraced the doctrine of the Assumption of Mary and saw it as a sign of hope whenever she was faced with death.

On the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, August 15, honor your loved ones by enrolling them in a prayer offering during Mass at the Basilica of The National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. To send your intentions, and also send an optional Mass Enrollment eCard immediately by email, please click here.

The Sisters here at the Shrine will place your intentions at Mother Seton’s Altar of relics and pray for her intercession.

Send this beautiful eCard to notify a loved one of your enrollment today:

(Only one person can be notified by email with an eCard per donation, but you can list the names of your enrollees in the box at the start, as well as additional prayer intentions at the end of the process.)

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint, is truly a saint for our time! Here at the Seton Shrine, we continuously work to spread the story of her amazing life and inspiring legacy.

Please prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift to help support the holy work of the Seton Shrine.
