Sisters in Ministry


We Poor Handmaids live and are involved in a myriad of ministries. We can be found in education, health care, social work, pastoral, spiritual and vocation ministry. We serve as counselors, spiritual directors, teachers, musicians and administrators. We work in diocesan offices, retreat centers, libraries, schools, hospitals and in mission lands. We partner with dedicated men and women serving others as did Saint Katharina Kasper, the foundress of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. Our congregation recognizes the needs of the times and adapts its ministries to these evolving needs.
