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.

For the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) today a beautiful essay, with original art, by Br. Michael O'Neill McGrath, OSFS. "The Many Colors of the Body of Christ," on Outreach:

"One of my favorite morsels of wisdom from St. Francis de Sales is his quote 'Be who you are and be that perfectly well.' The depth and wisdom of that very familiar quote has been a comforting source of prayer and contemplation throughout my life as a Religious Brother and continues to evolve in significance as I grow older, gentler, and hopefully wiser. So, in one of my digital drawings seen here I surrounded a monstrance with those words, a monstrance containing the ethnically multi-colored, rainbow-highlighted Bread of Life."

a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US.

The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

The Juneteenth flag is a symbol for the Juneteenth holiday in the United States. The first version was created in 1997 by activist Ben Haith and that early version was displayed in 1997. The present version was first flown in 2000. The colors and symbols on the flag are representative of freedom and the end of slavery. The date on the flag represents that of General Order No. 3 issued in Galveston, Texas in 1865.

In 2020 and 2021, many states began recognizing Juneteenth by flying the flag over their state capitol buildings, especially after Juneteenth was declared a federal holiday by President Joe Biden in June 2021.

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.”
