Standing in Their Footsteps

Standing in Their Footsteps

On October 6, 2014, my friend Ronda Lamoree and I flew out of Logan Airport to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).  Our purpose was to meet the sponsored children who are part of Kids in the Congo, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization co-founded by Congolese Assumptionist Fr. Salvator Musande and myself.

Fr. Benoît's Letter for the Feast of Emmanuel d'Alzon

Fr. Benoit Grière, A.A. Superior General of the Augustinians of the AssumptionDear Brothers and Sisters of the Assumption Family

We are celebrating the feast of Fr. d’Alzon as we do every year. Just about everywhere in the world, our communities and our lay friends are gathering to honor the memory of this man of God. Emmanuel d’Alzon remains a model for each of us and for all who desire to draw near to the God of Jesus Christ with a heart that is open and ready to serve. I believe, as I have said many times, in the holiness of our founder. He was a man given over to the cause of the Kingdom, a generous man who discovered that « for me, life is Christ ».

« La Croix »: An Epic History, 130 years in the Making

By former editor-in-chief, Yves Pitette
(Mr. Pitette recounts how, throughout the publication of 40,000 issues, this Assumptionist daily newspaper has tried to maintain fidelity to the tradition of its Catholic identity and editorial freedom.)

La Croix through the years
La Croix
through the years

If one were to judge solely by the numbers, La Croix is not the oldest French daily: Le Progrès of Lyon has it beat, having published 52,000 issues since 1859. But if you take into account the fact that since its first issue, which appeared on June 16, 1883, it has maintained the same title, the same owners (the Assumptionists) and has never swayed from its mission as a Catholic daily, the newspaper can certainly defend its position as the dean of French newspapers. But that is not what really matters.  At an annual rate of about 305 issues, it takes more than thirty years to produce 10,000 issues.

Assumption Students Have Mission to Serve Worcester

AC Volunteers

Worcester Housing Authority Apartment Complex Gets Spruced Up Thanks to Assumption College Volunteers

By Tyla Wade ‘15

Assumption College students love Worcester— so much so that more than 200 of them returned to the city before the start of fall semester to help out at a Worcester Housing Authority (WHA) apartment complex on Lakeside Street that provides affordable housing for low-income residents. Wearing gray T-shirts emblazoned with “Assumption Loves Worcester,” Assumption students worked alongside WHA staff to clean hallways, sweep walkways, and rake leaves.

November 13, Feast of the Three Bulgarian Assumptionist Martyrs

November_13-Feast_of_the_Three_Bulgarian_Assumptionist_Martyrs-01As it is every year, the feast of our three Assumptionist  Bulgarian martyrs is an opportunity to stop to reflect on the heritage that they have left not only to us who are called to work today in the Mission in Eastern Europe, but to every brother and sister of our Assumption Family and the Church at large.

Keeping alive their memory means rendering present among us these brothers whom the Church, by means of their beatification, considers to be a gift for all of Christianity. Praying to them, invoking their intercession, allows us to receive the spiritual support we need to make Christ alive in us and around us.
