Exciting Handmaid News

Congratulations to Ancillae-Assumpta Academy, the only Handmaid-sponsored school in the United States for recently earning two prestigious awards. The U.S. Department of Education named the Academy a National Blue Ribbon School for 2018, which marks the fourth time in the school’s history that it has received this award. The school was also recently named an Apple Distinguished School for a three-year term (2018-2021). The selection of Ancillae-Assumpta Academy as an Apple Distinguished School highlights its success at creating an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.

Congratulations to Sister Kathleenjoy Cooper who recently celebrated 60 years as a Handmaid of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Sister Kayjoy renewed her vows on Sunday, October 28th at Corpus Christi Church in Miami.

Farewell and Welcome to Sr. Maria Jesus Sagaseta (pictured below) who will be leaving her ministry in Miami and joining the community in Haverford; and to Sr. Uyen Chi Dang who has moved from the Handmaid community in Haverford and has joined the community in Athens, GA. Among her new responsibilities, Sr. Uyen Chi will also assist with the mission in El Salvador.
