Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus are an international community of Catholic women religious committed to Christ, living their consecrated life in the spirit of the Society founded by Cornelia Connelly in 1846. We believe that God has chosen to need women and men in every age to reveal God’s love as Jesus did. We serve in a variety of educational, pastoral, social, legal and spiritual ministries, through which we continue our mission to help others understand that God lives and acts in them and in our world and to rejoice in God's presence.

Trust and reverence for individual dignity and God's loving mercy for the human family and for all creation mark our lives and our work wherever we are.

So ought all to begin again
