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.

Update on Elizabeth from her mother:

“Elizabeth had a couple pretty good days which is great! She actually let us put her in the wheelchair today! She had fun and we were able to take her to the lobby to see the big fish tank! SHe is still having spasms but there does seem to be some improvement. She is scheduled to have another sedated MRI on Monday or Tuesday of her brain and spine. We are trying to coordinate that with some Botox injections for her left leg and arm. It is supposed to help her be able to move it better (less involuntary movements). Thank you so much for your prayers! We are so thankful for them!!

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.
