The collaboration between the Jesuits and the Handmaids is common and frequent: we both share the same spirituality – a common language and lifestyle – and have similar ways of reaching out to people and proclaiming Jesus. The Handmaids are involved in the pastoral work of the University Jesuit Centres in several cities of our Province. Lately, our collaboration has extended to spiritual guidance in groups preparing for Confirmation, faith-sharing groups and personal spiritual accompaniment. We keep ourselves available to meet new challenges and common projects.
