The model and patronage of our Religious consecration is the Blessed Virgin Mary who first declared "I am the Handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to your word" (Luke 1:38). In her, we find the model of deep faith, humility, zeal, absolute trust in Divine Providence and a delicate attentive service to others. From her we draw the spirit of the Congregation which is that of "all-embracing charity", manifesting itself in our motto of "Love and Service".
Transformation of our Communities and the World in Christ.
Faithful to Gospel values, the charism of our Foundress and attentive to the signs of the times, we, the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, commit ourselves to the transformation of lives through our prophetic witness of vowed life, community living, participatory leadership and apostolic ministry with a special option for the poor, women and children.
Simplicity, Commitment, Respect, Justice, Loyalty, Unity, Humility, Generosity, all abound in love and service.
