The Journey of Hope Event is our yearly fundraising gala auction to help raise funds and support for the Handmaids and their global mission. The Journey of Hope was initiated in 2010 as a way to “raise friends and funds” for the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, USA Province. Through the generosity of Beth and Jack Conroy, the event was each year from 2010-2013 at the historic Knowlton Mansion in Philadelphia. Combining the ambience and refinement of the mansion, along with the genuine hospitality of the Handmaids, the event has been attended annually by over two hundred invited guests and friends of the Sisters. In 2014, the event was held in conjunction with Ancillae-Assumpta Academy’s Blue and White Ball. The Legacy Gala, held at the Hyatt at the Bellvue, was attended by over 500 guests. In 2016, the Journey of Hope capitalized on holding the event close in proximity to the Handmaids’ first USA ministry. Literally, only a short walk from the Handmaids’ home in West Philadelphia, the Sheraton University City provided the perfect backdrop for a festive and memorable event!
The Journey of Hope fundraising endeavor is organized by the USA Handmaid Province Development Office and the Advisory Board for the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The event offers exposure to the Handmaids in an effort to assist them in furthering their mission and their ministries, including:
Only through the generosity of our friends and supporters will the Handmaids be able to continue spreading their mission through their good works.
