As a Sister

An invitation to a life of prayer and service in a religious congregation always comes from God, and it is to God that you must give your answer.

Every group has its own spirit and tradition, its unique way of serving God and our world. In the Society of the Holy Child Jesus our emphasis is on God who became human. We live and work in a wide variety of situations and each of us tries to use her gifts to the full in the service of God’s people.

If you feel God might be calling you to share our life of prayer and service, read about our living in community and the life of Cornelia Connelly and watch videos on Cornelia and on some of our sisters.
