The Sisters of the Holy Family, an African-American community, were founded by Henriette Delille, a free woman of color, in 1842 in New Orleans, Louisiana during the time of slavery. Her Sisters have depended on the grace and goodness of God and lived according to His will, their motto: “No cross. No crown.” They were founded to help the sick and elderly, to teach the uneducated, and to bring the message of Jesus to the poor and marginalized. For 182 years, we have used our gifts for teaching, nursing, social service, administration, pastoral, housing, and prison ministries in the United States, Central America, and Africa. We thank God for all that has been and look forward to the beatification of Venerable Henriette Delille. We welcome all nationalities. Please contact us.
