The next General Chapter of the Religious of the Assumption takes place in Lourdes 20th June - 20th July 2018.
Delegates from all over the world are gathering in the Assumption Centre in Lourdes for the month-long meetings and exchanges from all the provinces of the Religious of the Assumption. The Centre (www.assomption-lourdes.com) is just a few minutes from the Shrine and Grotto.
Sisters Patricia and Cathy, together with Assumption Volunteer coordinator Helen from England, have arrived to Lourdes where the meetings commence tomorrow. The sisters are busy preparing for the month-long Chapter and setting up the display introducing the Province of England.
Please keep the sisters in your prayer as they discern together the Lord's call for the Congregation!
