Abstract

Betty Ann McNeil imagines Elizabeth Seton speaking about her mission of education. Seton’s own words are combined with adaptations of her writings. The article recounts her call to mission and the difficulties she faced in New York, her mission in Maryland, and the challenges inherent in the founding of the Sisters of Charity and of Saint Joseph’s Academy in Emmitsburg. The educational model and the teaching methods used at Saint Joseph’s are discussed, and questions for reflection are offered to today’s educators. The Sisters’ works outside Emmitsburg are also mentioned.
