Sisters, volunteers, their families and guests gathered for an afternoon together in Milleret House, Central London.
Participants had a great time catching up, sharing lunch and memories at the Returned Assumption Volunteers Reunion in Milleret House on Saturday 7 October.
The Assumption Lay Volunteer Programme began in 1999. Since then 120 volunteers have served in Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda), Asia (Philippines, Thailand, India), Europe (Lithuania), Americas (Brazil, El Salvador, Mexico, USA) as well as in the UK (Newcastle, Hengrave, Kensington and Lochyside). About half went abroad and half to the UK.
"Convinced that each of us has a mission on earth, we want to help people discover the meaning of their lives and how they can be of service in the world. Assumption Volunteers is one of the ways we do this."
The Assumption Volunteer programme is open to men and women, aged 20 and over, who are open to personal and spiritual growth and who want to share in the Sisters' charism and work. Do you know anyone who might be interested to volunteer? Tell them about the Assumption Volunteer programme!

We are now accepting applications for Short Term Assumption Volunteers in Italy and the UK from January to July for a period of one to six month.
We enter into Advent on Sunday 3rd December. Let us take time to meditate on the mystery of God's reign and resist the temptation of busyness as we make this journey with Mary to Bethlehem...
On the feast of All Saints, Francesca, from our English province, was officially received into the European noviciate, and has begun to wear the purple which characterises Assumption sisters! The three other new novices are Ophélie-Thérèse from France, Victoria from Spain and Mercedes from Guatemala.
