Bishop Stika Visits Lake Villa


A Joyful Visit With Our Shepherd Bishop Stika

In August, Bishop Stika stopped by the Heart of Mary Priory, our house in the Archdiocese of Chicago located in Lake Villa, Illinois to say hello to the Handmaids and enjoy a brief visit. During his short stay he spent time in Chapel, visited the Sisters in the parlor and viewed some of the grounds. In addition, he demonstrated how he uses his iPad and even had some of these photos taken on it. We are grateful that our shepherd, who has welcomed us so warmly into his Diocese in East Tennessee, has made special trips to visit ‘his’ Handmaids wherever they are stationed and keeps the Sisters in New Mexico and Illinois in his thoughts and prayers as much as the Handmaids in Tennessee.
