Back from the Dead Cemetery Walk

October 21, 2023 @ 6:20 pm - 8:15 pm

Back from the Dead Cemetery Walks take place Oct. 13-15, 19-22, 27-29 in the historic cemetery  at the Seton Shrine, located at 339 South Seton Avenue in Emmitsburg, MD.

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: Oct. 13-15, 19-22, 27-29

Times: 6:20-8:15pm, with a walk beginning every 10-15 minutes

Tickets: To guarantee admittance, you must pre-purchase tickets ahead of time, as Back from the Dead will sell out. Walk-ins will only be admitted if space is available. Tickets are $5 in advance, $7 at the door.
