Heritage Week 2020

Every October, Rosemont College celebrates its heritage with a week of events that mark the founding and the mission of the College. The Sisters of the Holy Child, under its founder, Cornelia Connelly, began the first Holy Child School in England on October 15, 1846. Sisters of the Holy Child later opened Rosemont College in 1921. This SHCJ heritage is the source of the mission of the College today, both of which we celebrate this week.
