Throughout our history, children have been a central ministry for the Sisters of the Holy Family. As we Celebrate Our Legacy: Past, Present & Beyond, we continue this commitment by making children one of our five Legacy ministries. Through our collaborative work, our support of Catholic Charities, our work to end the trafficking of young girls and our continued leadership participation at the Holy Family Day Home we work to ensure that today’s children are loved and cared for.
