In the 19th century, Cornelia Connelly, married with five children and an American convert to Catholicism, founded the Society of the Holy Child Jesus in England. Cornelia was committed to living out and sharing the message of God's Incarnation: that through Christ's humanity, every person is worthy of respect and reverence. She devoted her life to educating children and exhorted Holy Child educators to carry this spirit to students of diverse backgrounds. Since 1846, Holy Child educators have helped students "to grow strong in faith" and  'live fully human lives'" in schools across the globe.
