Cornelia Connelly was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 15, 1809, and founded the Society in England in 1846. She encouraged her Sisters "to meet the wants of the age," while serving with joy, love and compassion. Today, through ministries in education, social work, spiritual direction, pastoral care and administration, legal services, art, and health care, the Holy Child Sisters continue Cornelia's legacy on four continents: North America, South America, Europe and Africa.
