    It’s time for a Christmas recital at St. Joseph’s Academy!

    Step back in time to the Christmas season in the 1800s and discover Elizabeth Ann Seton’s inspirational story from those who knew her best. Students are excited to recite poetry, sing Christmas songs, and play instruments such as the dulcimer.  

    Led by candlelight, these guided tours will lead you into the two historic homes of Mother Seton where you will encounter her beloved friends who will share stories of her life, as well as the legacy that they continued since her death in 1821. Decorated for the Christmas season, Candlelight Tours of Christmas Past will immerse you in historical traditions of Mother Seton’s time. 

    Guided tours will take place every hour at 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm.
