Give to the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
Agony Chapel

Planned Giving

Through your generosity and the important role you play, the Seton Shrine is continuing the work of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. We envision her Shrine as a spiritual retreat, where visitors by the thousands will have their hearts lifted, their faith nourished, and their spirits rejuvenated.

Taking our cue from Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton’s desire to serve the church and her people, we seek to offer a rich sacramental life at the Basilica, retreats and workshops for the faithful, engaging exhibits and programs, as well as an enriching atmosphere for the Shrine’s many visitors.

If you’d like to be a part of the Seton Shrine, make a difference today by using Saint Elizabeth Ann’s legacy as a roadmap.
