Put Your Faith into Action!


The Society of the Holy Child Jesus (SHCJ) is an international community of Roman Catholic Sisters founded by Cornelia Connelly in 1846. Today, througheducation, social programs, and partnerships, nearly 400 Sisters of the Holy Child continue Cornelia’s legacy and the Society’s mission of helping others to believe that God lives and acts in them and in our world. Throughout the world, the Sisters also help thousands of people develop their own gifts and talents so that they can find good jobs, break the cycle of poverty, and provide for their families.

Cornelia believed in encouraging all to be themselves, but to “make that self just what Our Lord wants it to be.” As a result, the works of each of the Sisters of the Holy Child are diverse and reflect their individual gifts and talents. Serving across four continents, the Sisters carry out their mission in many ways—as teachers, spiritual leaders, health care professionals, lawyers, social workers, parish administrators, and pastoral care workers, to name just a few. The Sisters have also founded many schools and social service organizations.

    Thank you,
