The Handmaids of the Sacred Heart
The HANDMAIDS OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
The Handmaids are an international group of Sisters with convents in 25 countries all over the world, including here in Boscombe.
Founded by St. Raphaela Mary in 1877, the Handmaids are Eucharistic Women, committed to making the Mass come alive in their worship, their lives and their ministries, trying to enable as many people as possible to come to know Jesus Christ and to love Him. They are passionate about people, especially the most disadvantaged and “those on the move” for whatever reason. Like the Jesuits, they are inspired by Ignatian Spirituality, trying to be women with and for others, who find God in everyone and everything.
Here in Boscombe there are 4 Sisters,. Sr Jo, Sr Joana, Sr Maria and Sr Margaret. They are present and work in our Corpus Christi Parish in many different ways.
