In today’s world it is increasingly difficult to meet nuns or religious sisters in person. And yet there are many thousands of sisters in every part of the world. There is no single way of describing them all, except to say that they hold God and other people in their hearts. Every group of sisters has its own spirit and purpose, its own way of living and sharing the Good News of the gospel.

The Society of the Holy Child Jesus is a small group of women working in Africa, Europe and North and South America. Our aim is to help others to grow strong in faith and live fully human lives.

The name of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus is a reminder that God became a human being, a child. So members of the Society are called in a particular way to respect and support the dignity of every human person and of the whole of creation.
