Put Your Faith into Action!

Get Involved

There are numerous ways for you to join with the Sisters in their mission.

  • Volunteer – Experience the work of Holy Child firsthand through a variety of service opportunities in California, the Dominican Republic, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC. Find a service opportunity that is right for you and join with us in continuing Cornelia’s mission.
  • Become An Associate – Associates are men and women who are inspired by the mission and spirituality of Cornelia Connelly, the Foundress of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. Associates deepen their spirituality through personal prayer, reflection, spiritual development, ministry, and community. Unlike the Sisters of the Holy Child, Associates are not vowed members of the order. They maintain their independent lifestyles and participate in Associate and Society activities as interest, time, and geography allow.
  • Giving – Everyday, throughout the world, close to 400 Sisters of the Holy Child help thousands of people, especially women and children, overcome obstacles such as poverty, illiteracy, and abuse. It is the generosity of countless donors that has made it possible for the Sisters to continue their mission and the legacy of Cornelia Connelly for more than 160 years. When you make a donation to the Society, you can choose to support the sisters’ ministries or the care of our retired sisters.
  • Become A Sister – 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.
