HANDMAIDS OF THE LORD
Women in the Holy Spirit, joyfully proclaiming the greatness and glory of God as Mary did by living out her fiat: "I am the Handmaid of the Lord, may it be done to me according to your word," in selfless love and discipleship.
The Handmaids of the Lord is a creation of God distinctly called to the mission of personal transformation, evangelization to bring her family and others, especially women, to a renewed life in the Lord, and wholehearted service to bring glad tidings to the poor.
