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.

What’s Happening

Our Pernet Family Health Service in Worcester has a few days left to support Pernet's Virtual Baby Shower. You can shop directly on Amazon for them:

We are grateful for each donation that has been made since May 1st.

As we wind down our month-long virtual baby shower, we urge you to consider making a donation if you have not done so already.
This weekend, if you are holding any gathering, consider requesting your guests to bring one of these items from our baby shower list. You can drop them off next week at our office or we can pick them up.

We have received over 20 large boxes of diapers

6 packs of 32oz liquid formula and 6 packages of 24, 8oz bottles.

Over 72 packs of wipes

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.
