“Mary said, ‘Behold, the handmaid of the Lord; be it to me according to your word.’ ~Luke 1:38
With the assistance of the parish priests of St Charbel’s, the young women of St Charbel’s parish have taken the initiative of starting a new women’s group called ‘Handmaids of the Lord’. It carries the Marian Spirit of the Maronite Church in venerating and honouring Mary as she is considered the perfect role model for every woman. As Mary chose to accept God’s will in her life, the young women today are also following Our Mother’s example. It is dedicated to the support, guidance and enlightenment of the young women of the community. “Handmaids of the Lord” involves a fortnightly meeting discussing spiritual and biblical themes and current issues that relate to young women of today in the light of our Catholic faith. All the young ladies are invited to attend these discussion nights.
Date: Fortnightly on Tuesdays
Age: All ages – Females only
Facebook: Handmaids St Charbel’s
