May they rest in peace!

St. Anne & St. Patrick Parish in Sturbridge was the site of the recent celebration in remembrance of three of our Lay Assumptionist members who have died in the last two years: Fr. Claude Grenache, A.A., Mary Ann St. Clair and Philip Delongchamp. The day began with a Mass with Fr. Alex Castro, A.A., pastor, as celebrant and homilist. It was fitting that the day was also the feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael as God's protector, messenger and guide. The liturgy was followed by a simple lunch during which everyone shared their memories and joyful gratitude for the friendship of these three dear members of the Assumption family. May they rest in peace!

On Saturday, 12 November, two brothers of the African Province made final profession of vows at the Jesuit Chapel of Hekima College, with some two-hundred friends and family members in attendance.  The Eucharistic celebration, at 11 in the morning, was concelebrated by some fifteen Assumptionists and other priest friends and presided by Fr. Richard Lamoureux, Superior General.

Brother Germain is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Brother Simon is from Kenya.  Brother Germain is currently studying theology, while Brother Simon having completing theological study has been assigned to Arusha (Tanzania), where he will coordinate the efforts of the Assumptionist Vocation Team of the East African Region.

The celebration following the profession ceremony was held at the residence of the Assumptionist community in Nairobi.

Re:               Founders Week

Date:           31 August 2018

The mission of the College is inspired by the vision of Fr. Emmanuel d'Alzon, which continues to animate the life of the College through the presence of the Assumptionists and each of us as their lay collaborators. To better understand our mission, a new initiative, which I hope will become part of the tradition on campus, is Founders Week, which will begin on Thursday, September 6th, with the Mass of the Holy Spirit at 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit. You will find the schedule of events for Founders Week posted throughout campus, as well as on the portal each day of throughout the week.

The goal of the organizing committee for Founders Week is to provide the College community with an opportunity to learn more about the mission of the Assumption brothers and sisters here on campus and in the world. For this reason, the focus of the week this year is not so much explicitly on the educational mission at the College, but is an invitation to broaden our understanding of the ministry of the Assumptionists and the Religious of the Assumption, as well as their collaborators, in addressing the challenges faced by immigrants in our world today in Worcester, Paris, Brussels, Chaparral (New Mexico), and in Saigon.

St. Augustine of HippoHere is my heart, O God, here it is with all its secrets. Look into my thoughts, O my hope, and take away all my wrong feelings. Let my eyes be ever on you, and release my feet from the snare. I ask you to live with me, to reign in me, to make this heart of mine a holy temple, a fit dwelling for your divine majesty. Amen.

St. Augustine of Hippo
