Sisters from the Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus live in the St. Gabriel Convent at the St. Joseph Campus. There are 13 Handmaids living here in Hopkins. They are serving at our parish, Holy Family Parish in St. Louis Park, St. Lawrence on the Campus of the University of Minnesota, and at Chesterton Academy.
The Handmaids community was founded in New Ulm 13 years ago. Their charism is "to live in imitation of Mary as handmaid, virgin, bride and mother in the diocesan life of the Church, carrying out the New Evangelization in parishes."
Sr. Anna & Sr. Margaret Joy serve here at St. Gabriel's.
