To celebrate 200 years since the birth of St Marie Eugenie and Sr Therese Emmanuel, 18-30 year olds are invited to join us in an international pilgrimage in France
The pilgrimage will bring together about 250 young adults from the 32 countries in which we live and serve. We will journey through France from August 16th - 26th 2017, visiting places significant to our Foundresses and reflecting on the theme: "Called to live as fully as possible!"
Where will the pilgrimage go?
Days 1 - 2: Preisch - Metz (where St. Marie Eugenie was born and raised)
Days 3 - 5: Lyon via Taize (overnight stay in Taize)
Days 6 - 10: Paris
Who can join the pilgrimage?
Anyone aged 18-30 who wants to grow in her/his relationship with God and with the Assumption is invited to apply to take part. There are only 10 places for participants from the UK, so get in touch as soon as possible to reserve a place!
Places for participants are being subsidised, so the cost being asked is only £300 for waged and £200 for unwaged/students.
If this cost is preventing you from applying please get in touch and discuss this with us.
We are delighted that Sister Rekha has been elected as new General Superior for the Religious of the Assumption. Sr Rekha Chennattu is a Scripture scholar from the Indian Province of the Congregation.
Young Adults are invited for a series of talks about Holiness in the Carmelite Church in Kensington.
The next General Chapter of the Religious of the Assumption takes place in Lourdes 20th June - 20th July 2018.
Sr Mary died on Sunday night 27th May; please pray for the repose of her soul and for those who mourn her.
