Rosary Procession by Novices and their Directress.

A Religious Vocation is a call to stand in for God; to discipleship and discipleship is a call to service (John 13:17), a response to God, to do something for humanity.

The Society of the Holy Child Jesus is an international community of women religious founded by Venerable Mother Cornelia Connelly in 1846. In the African province, we are gifted and called by God to bring the reality of the Incarnation and God’s love to the world.

Sr. Stella: What Is Vocation?

We each bring to the Society of the Holy Child Jesus our rich culture, heritage and feminine spirit. Our self-giving is based on generous love, freedom of spirit and joy, because we are aware and grateful for the giftedness and potential within us.

Sr. Stella: How Can One Recognize This Call?

Since 1930 the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus in Africa have worked in education, social, pastoral and spiritual ministries, Wherever we are and whatever our ministry we try with perseverance to help others to experience the goodness of God and live fully human lives.

Sr. Stella: Tell Us More About The Call To Religious Life

We work for Christian principles of justice, peace and compassion. Our spirit of simplicity, humility, charity and joy gives us the freedom to share in the mission of Christ by responding to the wants of the age in the church and in our world.

Sr. Stella: What Do Holy Child Sisters Do?

If you feel that God is calling you to share your gifts in the mission of our Lord Jesus Christ through the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, you are welcome to visit us or contact us.
