Late last year, the American Province announced plans for three separate Pilgrimages where travelers could “Walk the sacred paths of Venerable Cornelia Connelly.”  The Philadelphia Pilgrimage took place on April 19, 2023. The Pilgrimage to England is a ten day trip (October 9-18, 2023) and Louisiana and Mississippi Pilgrimage is a five day tour (April 7-12, 2024).

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 on the Pilgrimages to England and Louisiana and Mississippi, please see the details below or contact Sandy Lovascio at
