Final St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Stained Glass Window Sketch

St. Elizabeth Seton revision2 detail
St. Elizabeth Seton revision2 detail











St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is shown in the garb of her religious community, founded when she had already been a mother and a widow. Both her marriage and her religious state of life are represented by the cross and the wedding rings.

The olive branch represents peace, her rosary and bible her dedication to God's word and to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The mountains in the background are Emmitsburg, Maryland the site of her National Shrine and burial place. In the foreground are her home on Paca Street in Baltimore and the Church into which she was received into the Catholic faith in Manhattan.

Atop the window (not shown) will be several books and an apple to designate her dedication to teaching children.


This beatiful window will be placed in the southern transept on the Sanctuary side of the new church adjacent to St. Anne and the Blessed Virgin Mary. We are seeking a donor memorial for this custom, one-of-a-kind window.
