Closely related to Corpus Christi Church are the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. They once owned and ran Boscombe Convent (now the Anglo-European University College of Chiropractic).
The Handmaids are still a special part of our Parish and have a small Convent at 6 Parkwood Road, Boscombe. The ACI is the lay family who encourage and support the work of the Handmaids locally and around the world.

Links of Love – ACI Family Prayer Group. The ACI Family undertake to pray especially in front of the Blessed Sacrament for any intentions that anyone may have. A box for any written intentions can be found on the St Raphaela altar within the Sacred Heart Chapel. The intentions will be burnt after our prayer. This month we pray especially for those who are hurting right now. Our Father in Heaven, place you arms around those who are hurting today. Comfort and guide them and give them your strength.
