Spiritual Life


"Be then like the Holy Child Jesus in your thoughts, in your words, and in your actions."

Cornelia Connelly 

Campus Ministry is central to Holy Child’s mission, as we seek to develop students of “Actions Not Words,” who seek a personal relationship with God, spiritual growth, and to put their love of God and neighbor into action in service to our school and wider communities. Through their studies in religion class and their lived faith experiences of Mass, sacraments, daily prayer, retreats, and Christian Service, students are presented with many ways to engage in their call to “be yourself, but make that self all that God wants it to be," as our beloved founder Cornelia Connelly wrote. Students are encouraged to learn, explore, discuss, and experience their faith and put it into action both personally and in community at Holy Child.  

The Campus Ministry team supports all members of our Holy Child community – students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumnae – through intentional programming and ministry. We invite you to explore our pages for more information on each aspect of our programming.  

Holy Child celebrates our Catholic identity as a part of the Network of Holy Child Schools in the United States and globally. We welcome students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumnae of all faith traditions. Students attend our school with different faiths, ranging from world religions to a variety of Christian denominations, and we have opportunities during the year to highlight these and engage in thoughtful conversations about our similarities and what makes each unique.
