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 the Shrine’s exclusive biography, Elizabeth Bayley Seton, written by Annabelle M. Melville, 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.
