Our Mission
We are called by God to be a presence inflamed within our world, witnessing to God’s love through prayer, joyful witness and loving service. Our mission is a God-given mission which overflows from each sister’s profound life of prayer.
“True compassion does not marginalize, humiliate or exclude and does not celebrate the passing away of a patient.”

-Pope Francis

The Miami Heat surprised our Sister Margaret Ann with a pep rally celebrating her work at Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

Handmaidens | Authenticity in Prayer | January 26, 2019

“Prayer…is nothing else than an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us,” wrote St. Teresa of Avila. We need not be afraid to approach God in prayer. He desires that we bring Him our true selves – the real you conversing with the real God.

Handmaidens | Strength in Weakness | February 16, 2019

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you…” Acts 1:8 We all have times in our lives when we feel weak and powerless. It is in these moments that the Holy Spirit most desires to come as Strength in our weakness. As St. Paul teaches us “When I am weak, it is then that I am strong.” Discover the incredible strength of God when you confront the reality of human weakness!
