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.

HAPPY EASTER FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!

Easter reflection from ‘Mass on the World’ by Teilhard de Chardin, Easter Sunday 1923

“Over there on the horizon, the sun has just touched with light the outermost fringe of the eastern sky. Once again, beneath this moving sheet of fire, the living surface of the earth wakes and trembles.”

“It is done! Once again Fire has penetrated the Earth.”

JOYEUX PÂQUES DE NOTRE FAMILLE À LA VÔTRE !

Réflexion de Pâques tirée de la "Messe sur le monde" de Teilhard de Chardin, dimanche de Pâques 1923.

"Là-bas, à l'horizon, le soleil vient d'effleurer de sa lumière la frange la plus extérieure du ciel oriental. Une fois de plus, sous cette nappe de feu en mouvement, la surface vivante de la terre s'éveille et tremble."

"C'est fait ! Une fois de plus, le feu a pénétré la terre."

¡FELIZ PASCUA DE NUESTRA FAMILIA A LA TUYA!

Reflexión pascual de la "Misa sobre el mundo" de Teilhard de Chardin, Domingo de Pascua de 1923

"Allá en el horizonte, el sol acaba de tocar con luz la franja más externa del cielo oriental. Una vez más, bajo esta hoja de fuego en movimiento, la superficie viva de la tierra se despierta y tiembla".

"¡Está hecho! Una vez más el Fuego ha penetrado en la Tierra".

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.
