Slideshow | Handmaidens Beach Trip 2010

On May 23, 2010 the Handmaidens traveled with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart to the beach for a relaxing and refreshing evening of prayer, praise, and fellowship.  The afternoon began with Evening Prayer and was followed by a delicious meal.  The evening concluded with a songs, a beautiful view of the ocean and a picture-perfect sunset.

Handmaidens is a group for young single women between the ages of 18 – 35 who desire to learn more about their faith and the beauty and dignity that is accorded to them in their vocation as women, which will guide them in their life choices and be an integral part of their formation –  spiritually, emotionally and psychologically.  Handmaidens meets once a month for a potluck, talks given by the Sisters and chosen laity, and Adoration.  The fruit of these gatherings has been a strengthening in the spiritual life and a desire to live holiness of life in whatever vocation our Lord is calling them to.
