“Meet the Wants of the Age”
-Cornelia Connelly

Cornelia Connelly established a religious community that is responsive to the needs of the time, or in her words, to “meet the wants of the age.” For nearly 170 years, Holy Child Sisters have carried out the mission as teachers, spiritual leaders, health care professionals, lawyers, social workers, parish administrators, and pastoral care workers.
