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.
As we continue the Creationtide journey through these weeks up to the 4th October, the Assumption Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation Team brings you some news and inspiration.
The English pilgrims had an inspiring and moving experience during the Bicentenary pilgrimage to France 16-26 August 2017.
The Creationtide season runs from 1 September until 4 October, the feast of St Francis every year. We are called to pay special attention to the responsibility of humanity for the Earth and for all that lives upon it.
A special message for this wonderful feast day from Sr Martine & the General Council of the Religious of the Assumption
