March 10th, the anniversary of St. Marie Eugenie's death, is her feast day. Let us give thanks for this remarkable woman whose life, marked by love for our Lord and passion for His Kingdom, has touched so many persons and communities around the world since the congregation was founded in 1839.
Pope Benedict XVI said at her canonization in June 2007:
"May the example of our new saint, foundress of the Religious of the Assumption, help you focus your spiritual life in Christ and in the mystery of the Incarnation, and move you to make a firm and courageous apostolic commitment, transmitting Gospel values to the culture of today...."
On September 14, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, the Assumption Sisters celebrated Sr Veronica Ann's 50 years of Religious Profession.
"Above all there is a sense of deep urgency and profound concern for the precarious state of our common planetary home."
The feast of Our Lady’s Assumption is always a special occasion, but this year it was marked with extra significance.
Milleret House is closed for the summer.
