Have your meeting on the beautiful grounds of the Seton Shrine! We have several meeting rooms to fit groups up to 110 people. Catering service is available. During breaks, your attendees can visit our scenic and peaceful grounds. You may also want to make time to see our sites on a guided tour. See the details below:

  • View the awe-inspiring Basilica with stained glass windows, mosaics and marble, which serves as the final resting place of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.
  • Tour Elizabeth Ann Seton's two historic homes - a 1750s farmhouse called the Stone House, and the colonial-style White House built in 1810.
  • Make time for the Charity Afire Exhibit in our museum, and our Civil War Tour. The Shrine's grounds are rich with Civil War history. Tour the grounds and learn how the war that divided our national came to Emmitsburg in late June 1863. The Daughters and Sisters of Charity played a prominent role during the Civil War, caring for soldiers on both sides. Visit the historic White House, which was the site of a Union encampment in 1863. During the encampment, Union officers conducted a war council to prepare for the Battle of Gettysburg. Read personal accounts of the Sisters, see artillery and bullet fragments, and view large panorama images and photos in the Charity Afire Civil War exhibit.
  • Self-tour the museum, which features exhibits and artifacts from Elizabeth Ann Seton's life, as well as a 15-minute orientation video.
  • Enjoy time in the Seton Legacy Garden with inspirational markers and a beautiful fountain.
