Seton Legacy Garden

Seton Legacy Garden

The Seton Legacy Garden honors 200 years of history, charity, and dedication begun by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton in 1809.

At the center of the garden is a statue of Elizabeth Ann Seton in her role as teacher. The surrounding pathways in the garden offer a place of reflection and solitude, with inscriptions of inspirational quotes on pavers and markers.

If you have recently purchased a memorial, or already have one in the garden, join us for the Seton Legacy Garden Blessing on Saturday, May 19, at 3pm. It will take place inside the Basilica due to the chance for severe weather. Learn more about the Garden Blessing here. We welcome you to come early for Mass in the Basilica at 2pm, which is part of our Mother’s Day Novena Mass series.
