1865-2015 : the 150th anniversary of the Foundation of the Congregation !
We wish, that the year 2015 be a time when, together, we would return to the Source so as to deepen our spiritual life and to strengthen further our life commitment from day to day.
The Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Assumption is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its foundation this year! On this occasion we wish to give a broad testimony and speak to the world about our mission among those who are in extreme poverty.
We wish that this year, 2015, might be a time when we return together to our source to deepen our spiritual life and strengthen our life commitment day by day. Let us journey without fear, as Pope Francis invites us to do! Let us marvel at what God has done and continues to do for us since the humble and firm response given by Etienne Pernet and Antoinette Fage.
Now, as the year of the consecrated life proclaimed by the Holy Father unfolds,
we invite you to discover our history and our present missions.
Something to note…
