Handmaidens (California) is a faith formation group for single women between the ages of 18 and 35 who desire to cultivate a deeper relationship with Our Lord and walk the faith journey alongside other women. This program is also dedicated to helping young women cultivate a deeper appreciation and understanding of their dignity and vocation as women. Formation and living holiness in the world are nurtured and supported through conferences given by the Carmelite Sisters, prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, praise & worship, fellowship, service, and a shared potluck meal.

This years theme is:

“Abiding in Him”
