Participate in the Seton Shrine’s Book Club and explore the life of Elizabeth Ann Seton as she trusted in God, fought for what she believed in, and left a legacy in the charism of charity.  We will be reading Elizabeth Seton: American Saint, written by Catherine O’Donnell, and we invite you to join us for a six-weeks session to meet weekly in a video conferencing platform, Zoom, for a facilitated conversation on parts of the book based on the discussion schedule.   

Two different times are offered (Group 1 Mondays at 9am – Group 2 Thursdays at 7pm), with 20 spots available per group. Registration is required at $35 per person. It all leads up to an exclusive moderated discussion with the author of the book on the last night (Week 6).  

What You Need:

  1. A copy of Elizabeth Seton: American Saint (which you can purchase here)
  2. A computer with a webcam and microphone, laptop, tablet or phone.  

You will receive a link from the Club Host to connect to the 90-minutes discussion each week (the last discussion night will be 2 hours).
