Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Mission Statement

The mission of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is reparation.  As Eucharistic women, we work with Christ to bring healing to people’s hearts and peace to their relationship with God, with one another, and with creation.  “Our deepest desire is for all people to know and love God.”

Vision Statement

An international community of women, the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus celebrate God’s unconditional love with a passion for wholeness, peace, and reconciliation.  In the United States we rejoice in the gift that is ours to be interracial and multicultural in membership.

Prayerfully present in our world struggling for integrity and wounded by ignorance and selfishness, we know we are called to collaborate in the redemptive mission of Jesus in a community which has the Eucharist as its center.

We are constantly challenged by the demands of celebrating the Lord’s Supper.

Empowered by the experience of breaking bread together, we commit ourselves to:

  • nurture faith development
  • approach the world with hope and hospitality
  • reverence the earth
  • celebrate diversity
  • side with the poor
  • act as leaven for community building
  • share all that we are and have

Our ministry is education in service of the Gospel.  Whatever educates invites our collaboration.

Inspired by St. Raphaela Mary, our Foundress, we strive to find God in all things and to respond, as Mary did, with a courageous and creative FIAT—let it happen—to God’s compassionate plan for the universe.
