The American Province is excited to announce plans for three separate Pilgrimages where travelers can “Walk the sacred paths of Venerable Cornelia Connelly.” The Pilgrimages will take place in Pennsylvania, England, and Louisiana and Mississippi.
Venerable Cornelia Connelly, a Philadelphian, founded the Society of the Holy Child Jesus in Derby, England in 1846. Cornelia experienced unexpected detours and obstacles in her family life, as a woman in the Church, and in society. Throughout her life, Cornelia’s spirit was independent, resourceful, and courageous.

We invite you to join us on journeys that will provide insightful information on a woman on the path to Beatification. For more information, please see the details below or contact Sandy Lovascio at
