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.

PRAYER
O God, in Your love for all of humanity, You filled the heart of Father Stephen Pernet with the ardent desire to establish Your Reign among the poor, the workers and their families. You inspired him to found the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Assumption.

Grant that we may be animated by the same passion to work for Your Glory and for the good of the poor and little ones.
Today, in hope and prayer, we are awaiting the recognition by the Church of the Sanctity of Father Pernet who devoted his life for the well-being of families. That is why, through Father Pernet’s intercession, we are praying to You to bestow upon Michael Zalansky a full cure from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome which has become very debilitating.
Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be …
OUR FATHER who art in heaven, holy be your Name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
HAIL MARY full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
GLORY BE to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Testimonials

Philipp Kappestein

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.”

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.
