Group Tours

Explore the Seton Seton! As a historic and religious site, the Seton Shrine is the home of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and the history of the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph’s. Choose one of the tours listed below to learn more and schedule your visit.

Field Trips

Build upon what your students learn in the classroom with a field trip to the Shrine. History, architecture, art and religion are some of the subjects that can support your curriculum. Be sure to ask about our Living History program where our Junior History Interpreters can share what it’s like to be a student in the 19th century! 

Pilgrimage

Your group is welcome to walk our grounds, explore our museum, watch our short film, and attend the regularly scheduled 1:30pm Mass in the Basilica that takes place Sunday – Friday, as well as Confession and Adoration that occur before Mass beginning at 12:15pm. You may also schedule a Mass if you have a priest who wishes to celebrate Mass for your group.
