Associates are men and women who are inspired by the mission and spirituality of Cornelia Connelly, the Foundress of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. Associates deepen their spirituality through personal prayer, reflection, spiritual development, ministry, and community.
Unlike the Sisters of the Holy Child, Associates are not vowed members of the Society of the Holy Child. They maintain their independent lifestyles and participate in Associate and Society activities as interest, time, and geography allow.
If you want to deepen your spirituality as a lay person, join with others who share Gospel values in the spirit of Cornelia Connelly, or want to join the Sisters in their mission of helping others to believe that God lives and acts in our world, learn more about becoming an Associate and contact Cathi Duffy, Associates Director at 610.626.1400, x310. Also, be sure to read some of our newsletters.
