Back from the Dead Cemetery Walks take place October 16-18, 23-25, 30-31 and November 1 in the historic cemetery at the Seton Shrine, located at 339 South Seton Avenue in Emmitsburg, MD.

Learn more about the walk in the video below.

On the Cemetery Walk, as a guide leads you through the dark by candlelight, saints and martyrs come to life and reflect upon the “Last Things”: death, judgment, heaven and hell. Like Saint Isaac Jogues, who will describe what the North American martyrs endured for the sake of Christ. Or St. Teresa of Avila, who will share her visions of hell.

You’ll also meet Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, who reveals how she found Jesus in the midst of suffering.

Through these encounters with saints, and martyrs, you’ll discover what it means to be truly alive, both now and in the life to come.

This faith-filled walk is ideal for youth groups and families with older children (14+).

Dates: October 16-18, 23-25, 30-31 and November 1*

*Due to COVID and limited capacity this year, we are offering an Indoor Basilica experience on Nov 1st.

Times: 6:30-8:30pm, with a walk beginning every 10-15 minutes
