Slideshow | Handmaidens Beach Trip 2011

On May 22, 2011, the Handmaidens traveled to the beautiful beach to spend an evening of prayer, song, and fellowship with the Carmelite Sisters.  This annual trip to the shore was a joyous occasion!  Handmaidens is a group for young single women between the ages of 18 – 35 who desire to learn more about their faith, and of 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.
