Handmaids of The Lord:
The CFC-Handmaids of the Lord is a community of Christian women actively involved in helping other women renew and live to the fullest their Christian faith.
It provides support to women who are single parents, separated or divorced, widows, unmarried mature women and married women (whose husbands are not available or ready to participate in any religious affiliation) by becoming part of a women’s Christian faith community. Realizing the difficult life and role that these women play in family and society due to loneliness, rejection and fear, the CFC-Handmaids of the Lord helps provide pastoral guidance and support.
