We are one family, bonded together and sent to change conditions that breed poverty, injustice, discrimination and marginalization.

We care for one another. Caring gives birth to covenant relationships ―empathy, friendship, tenderness, compassion, mercy, unconditional love and deep respect.

The power of growth is in relationship where in every encounter we are both giver and receiver. We value ‘power with’ vs ‘power over’

Belief in the capacity to rise beyond one’s struggles.

Our Spirituality leads to personal transformation and transformation of the world.

We live what we believe that we are sent to those who have neither voice nor influence in this world.

A wonderful update on Meg
Sr. Susanne reports Meg was in icu til last night and then put in a room, and discharged today! This is truly a miracle, as the day of surgery, they started it at 5:30am, and at 1pm, they told her parents that she was going to REcovery, they could see her in 1-2 hrs. She was saying a few words so they knew she could talk, but the surgeon mentioned he didn't know if she could walk. They operated through the back of her head, they had to take some of her skull bone so she has a titanium plate on both sides of her head and several screws. The only pain she has is that she still can't move her head or lay on it, and her neck is very swollen but that will improve. And she is able to walk with assistance! She was doing so poorly before the surgery but so much better now. Her family sends much gratitude for all the prayers everyone said for her. They truly believe it is a miracle and they are so grateful. Please join us in thanksgiving to God for this special gift. The initial biopsy is negative but they are waiting for the pathology report for more information. Susanne

When I read the mission statement of the Little Sisters of the Assumption, I found it expressed my own sentiments when it said, “We bring together the least advantaged and the privileged in a spirit of family to inspire everyone to participate in creating a just society.”

It was great to be surrounded by people of great faith and who are so caring and giving. Our faith has grown and our prayer life has deepened.

I know that these 11 months have given me much more than two semesters at a university could ever have given me; I now feel much more ready to resume my studies.
