The ‘Fancywork’ exhibit at the Seton Shrine highlights needlework done by students in the late 1800s at St. Joseph’s School. The new museum honors its namesake, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and features junior interpreters, who help bring history to life.

The museum and visitors center, which opens Sept. 22, tells the life story of Mother Seton through an immersive experience, examining her impact as the first native-born American to be canonized.
