Handmaidens

Handmaidens 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, praise & worship, and small group discussions.

This years theme is:

Unlocking the Feminine Genius with Carmel

The world does not need what women have; it needs what women are.”
– St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Join us as we journey with our Carmelite saints to discover, embrace, and flourish in our identity as women.
