So that's where curiosity came into play. One day last February my husband and I were driving up to Gettysburg and we decided to stop (we were also playing Ingress, and there are a number of portals at the college and the Grotto). We ended up going back early summer with a family guest, who, being Catholic, expressed an interest in seeing the Grotto.
I ended up learning a little about a pretty amazing woman: Elizabeth Ann Seton. Actually, that's Saint Elizabeth Seton.
Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, (August 28, 1774 – January 4, 1821) was the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (September 14, 1975). She established the first Catholic school in the nation, at Emmitsburg, MD, where she founded the first American congregation of religious sisters, the Sisters of Charity. She was a woman of prayer and service.
