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.
Milleret House is closing for the summer.
From 10th -16th July the annual meeting of the Provincial Councils of the six Provinces of the Religious of the Assumption met in London.

The Assumption Sisters of the English Province celebrated the Bicentenary of the Birth of St Marie Eugenie and Sr Therese Emmanuel with a special mass.
