Mother Seton and the Sisters of Charity (#50538)

Vision Books series of saints for youth 9 - 15 years old.
Alma Powers-Water
Paperback 168 pages, Illustrated

In 1975, Mother Elizabeth Seton was canonized as America's first native-born Roman Catholic saint. This Vision Book tells the inspiring true story of the life of Elizabeth Bayley Seton from her childhood in a distinguished New York family to her becoming a sister and foundress of an order of nuns.
Born in 1774, Elizabeth Bayley grew up in a well-to-do Protestant family. At age 19 she married William Seton and together they had five children. When William died of tuberculosis, Elizabeth learned that her family fortune was lost as well. She converted to Catholicism at a time when Catholics were the object of persecutions in the United States. Her family was shocked by this decision. Elizabeth met Bishop Carroll of Maryland, and he gave her the inspiration to found the American Sisters of Charity and the first American parochial Catholic school. In time her order of sisters flourished, and they established more schools, orphanages and hospitals across the United States.
