    The year is 1818. You’re 15 years old and away at boarding school over Christmas for the first time. But this isn’t just any school – it’s Mother Seton’s school. This Christmas is bound to be unforgettable!

    Revisit the past in a whole new way during this incredible living history experience.

    Interact with the Seton Shrine’s celebrated Junior History Interpreters, girls ages 8-18 who each portray a real student who attended Mother Seton’s school. They will share stories, perform Christmas music, and perhaps even recite some poetry!

    Stroll down lantern-lined walkways in a self-guided tour and see the historic homes of Mother Seton, each tastefully decorated for the Christmas season.

    Walk the peaceful grounds where Mother Seton herself walked and encounter her beloved friends who will share stories of her life and legacy.

    Candlelight Tours of Christmas Past is sure to be a delightful start to the Christmas Season that your whole family will treasure.

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