The Provincial Chapter of the Religious of the Assumption took place in Rome 29th October – 1st November 2021, which included the election of the new Provincial Council.
Last weekend, the Assumption Sisters gathered for the first time in person, after the Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns, in Rome from four European countries: England, Belgium, Italy and Lithuania.
The weekend saw the Sisters’ making a pilgrimage to the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, and the election of the new provincial council.

Please keep the Sisters’ in your prayers as they begin this new term together:
Lord, we pray that their service may be enlightened by your Spirit and Word. May their leadership help the Religious of the Assumption live their consecration with greater intensity, follow in the footsteps of Christ more eagerly and strengthen their community day by day. May they continue to live their commitment with obedience, faithful collaboration, and joy.
As we prepare to enter the Advent season, we would like to invite you for a day of reflection. Please join the Kensington community for a day in Milleret House on 30th November.
