On the 1st of January of 2014, the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus formed a new province from the old provinces of England/Ireland and Portugal and the houses of France. This was called the Atlantic Europe Province. The new entity is composed of 71 religious sisters spread throughout the world.
It was born from the desire to serve the church better, discovering new ways for the new evangelization.
Sister Ana Maria Ramírez was nominated Provincial Superior of the new province.
