Elizabeth Ann Bayley, known to all of us as Mother Elizabeth Seton, was born in 1774 to Anglican parents. This is the story of her life. The mother of Elizabeth and her two sisters, died when Elizabeth was only four years old. When Elizabeth was twenty years old, she married William Seton and they had five children before his life was taken after a long illness with tuberculosis. This was in 1802 when Elizabeth was only twenty-eight years old and in the nineteen years until her own death, she accomplished many things: she converted to Catholicism, started schools, orphanages in Europe and the United States, and founded the religious community called the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph.
