As a Sister

For nearly 160 years, the Sisters of the Holy Child in the American Province have dedicated their lives to carrying on Cornelia Connelly’s legacy. The Sisters of the Holy Child share a common mission, to help others to believe that God lives and acts in them and in our world, but what is most precious to the life of the Society is the diverse perspective and experience each member brings. Each Sister’s unique gifts and talents are cherished and celebrated in carrying out the Society’s mission.

If you are drawn to the mission and spirit of the Society, we invite you to learn more about how you can share your unique gifts and talents as a Sister of the Holy Child. Here are some resources to get you started:
