The Shepherd Visits

A Handmaid News

We were recently blessed to have Mass and a visit by Bishop Stika. He celebrated Mass for us, sharing a meal, and pausing for a few photos. It’s hard to believe that this Spring it will have been nine years since Handmaids first arrived in the Diocese of Knoxville. We remain grateful to God to have found a new home and warm welcome in East Tennessee.

Happy to finally meet our Postulant Maria. Smiles all around.
