The English pilgrims had an inspiring and moving experience during the Bicentenary pilgrimage to France 16-26 August 2017.
The young people were accompanied by Sr Cathy, Sr Carolyn and Francesca. Joining the international gathering of the Assumption community, they walked in the footsteps of St Marie-Eugenie and Sr Therese-Emmanuel, while reflecting on the theme of living life to the fullest.
Anthony, one of the pilgrims said: “The highlights of the pilgrimage for me were making new friends from around the world and being able to grow stronger in faith. It was a very enriching experience, especially when we were in our ‘community of life’ as we were able to express our feelings and open up to each other.”
Sisters, volunteers, their families and guests gathered for an afternoon together in Milleret House, Central London.

The Assumption Sisters, together with the Assumption Fathers and Oblate Sisters invite young adults for monthly mini-retreats in Milleret House, Kensington.
