Emmitsburg shrine to celebrate All Saints’ Day

The Basilica of the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg will observe All Saints’ Day with a celebration Nov. 1. A noon Mass will be held in the basilica, followed by a eucharistic procession from the basilica to White House chapel, the restored house where St. Elizabeth Ann Seton lived and worked from 1810 until her death in 1821. Devotional prayers will be held in the White House chapel from 2-2:15 p.m., 3-3:15 p.m. and 4-4:15 p.m.

In the event of rain, the procession will take place within the Basilica, and the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the Altar of the Relics, where St. Elizabeth Ann is entombed.
