Saint Mary’s Spiritual Center & Historic Site

600 N Paca St, Baltimore, MD 21201 www.stmaryspacast.org

The Sulpician Fathers settled at the St. Mary’s site in 1791, invited by Bishop John Carroll to start the first Catholic Seminary in the United States. Today, you will find four buildings on site: the Seminary Chapel, Mother Seton House, the Spiritual Center and the Visitor Center. Completed in 1808, the chapel is one of the earliest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in the United States. The soaring ivory and gold interior, with pointed arches and tall, bundled columns is awe-inspiring. The seminary was home to Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first US-born saint canonized in the Catholic Church. Learn more about St. Mary’s on a guided tour with a docent!
