One Year of Service for a Lifetime of Enrichment

Put your faith into action alongside the Sisters of the Holy Child by serving those in need in the Dominican Republic. As a Holy Child Volunteer, you will grow personally, spiritually, and professionally, as you share in Christ’s mission and the mission of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, which is “to help others to believe that God lives and acts in them and in our world.”

Serve Those in Need

In 1995, the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus started a mission in the Dominican Republic, north of Santo Domingo. The area is known as Batey Lecheria and is home to about 3,000 Haitian immigrants. The mission includes both a school and a medical clinic, where the Sisters and volunteers serve 400 children and nearly 12,000 patients annually.
