Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Annunciation by Fra Angelico

Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to your word.

Luke 1:38

As Handmaids we bear the name that Mary gave to the angel at the Annunciation. We are an international Religious Congregation of about 1300 sisters.

Let us be more concerned, very much more concerned, with the interests of Jesus, wherever they take us.
