Handmaidens | Pilgrimage to the Desert 2010

On February 27, 2010 a group of Handmaidens traveled to Mount Carmel in the Desert for a day of reflection and prayer with the Carmelite Sisters.  This beautiful journey was a blessing to many, and provided the participants with the opportunity to grow and deepen their relationship with the Blessed Trinity.

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.
