Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus

Look what I found on the Diocese of New Ulm website. Good News!

UPDATE: More info can be found in the Prairie Catholic on page 5.

Historic day for the Diocese of New Ulm!

New religious order of women religious is established:
Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus

(Above: front, l-r): Sr. Regina Marie of the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, Sr. Miriam Rose of the Incarnate Word, Sr. Magdalena Marie of the Trinity, and Mother Mary Clare of the Heart of the Father. With Bishop John M. LeVoir (center) are visiting bishops and friends of the Handmaids, Bishop Paul D. Sirba, Diocese of Duluth (far left), and Bishop Peter F. Christensen, Diocese of Superior, Wisconsin (far right) and Fr. Andrew Cozzens (far left), who assisted the Handmaids in their discernment of becoming a religious order.

Mother Mary Clare takes her solemn vows as the foundress of the order.

Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus: Four Sisters received the habit and a new name on March 24 at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm.
