“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
— St. Francis of Assisi
Art has always held a special place within the tradition and spirit of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, especially as part of a Holy Child education. Cornelia Connelly was an artist who saw all forms of artistic endeavors as invitations to experience the wonder, beauty and love of our unseen God.
From Cornelia we also have a legacy of appreciation for the uniqueness of each person’s talents and gifts.
