“To have a real impact, even in our small sphere.” (St. Marie Eugenie)
The sisters in England make up one of the seventeen Provinces of the worldwide Congregation. We have five communities.
In the west of London Kensington is the Provincial House, the residence of the Provincial Superior and the hub of provincial administration. The community runs Milleret House, a small spirituality centre and the Assumption Lay Volunteer Programme, also has its headquarters in Kensington. It is currently the house which welcomes aspirants and postulants for the English Province.
Nearby St. Catherine’s Community is the home of the sick and frail sisters of the Province. This vibrant community witnesses, by its joy and openness, to the fulfilment of lives totally given to God. Their prayer is a source of strength for the Province, the Congregation and all those in need.
To the east of London, the Wanstead Community is inserted in a multi-ethnic neighbourhood. The sisters are involved in various ministries in the parish and local area.
In Newcastle the community of sisters live in a deprived area of the city, witnessing to the care of the Church for those who are marginalized. They were instrumental in setting up Kids Kabin, a creative arts centre for children. Two communities for Assumption Volunteers are linked with the sisters, one living next-door and the other in another part of the city.
In summer 2016, the community in Oxford was closed and a new community opened in Twickenham, Middlesex. The specific mission of the sisters is to be a praying presence in St Mary's University, Twickenham.
