Newcastle, England: The Kids Kabin Project

“Let’s Make, Not Break”

Newcastle, England: The Kids Kabin Project

Kids Kabin is a children’s charity based in Newcastle upon Tyne. We use creative arts and practical, hands-on projects to give children living in disadvantaged communities a chance to achieve. We work with schools during the day, developing creative projects to complement the curriculum. Then in the afternoons, evenings and school holidays we run creative and practical workshops on the streets using our innovative mobile workshops, at our main centre in Walker and in community venues across Newcastle upon Tyne. We also run wild camps and bike rides in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
A view of its history

In 1993 three Sisters of the Assumption were sent to Walker, in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne. After some months of reconnaissance, they chose to settle there.
Even before we had time to unpack, ‘the nuns’ were objects of curiosity, and our small space was invaded by children who were only subdued by the offer of occupation out of limited resources of paper, crayons and games. It was the beginning.

ANNUAL FOURTH OF JULY PICNIC WAS HELD AT THE ASSUMPTIONIST CENTER

Tuesday, July 4th, saw the gathering of many of the Aussumpion Family religious and lay members, (ranging from 2 mos. to 101 years,) in our backyard at the Assumptionist Center in Brighton. I think that it would represent 5 generations!  In coming together, it gave us the  honor of officially welcoming Fr. Dennis Gallagher, A.A. as our new Provincial and thanking Fr. Miguel Diaz, as our former Provincial. I addition, we remembered Fr. Claude Grenache, A.A. who began this noteworthy event and for whom we hope to carry on this tradition.

Thanks to Michelle's expert cuisine no body went home hungry!

THE ASSUMPTIONISTS AT LAVAGNAC PDF Print E-mail

English pilgrims visit the chateau of Lavagnac (Fr. Tom O’Brien, A.A., in the center)English pilgrims visit the chateau of Lavagnac (Fr. Tom O’Brien, A.A., in the center)

It was a first that took place this past June 10 when a group of lay and religious pilgrims arrived from the other side of the English Channel here at Lavagnac in order to walk in the footsteps of their founder, Fr. Emmanuel d'Alzon. Accompanied by several Oblate Sisters from Nimes, they were under the direction of Fr. Thomas O’Brien, pastor at Our Lady of the Assumption in East London. The Oblates arrived in England at Charlton in 1903 where they opened a school, three years after the arrival of the Assumptionists. This group of pilgrims had come to the 'Petit Versailles’ of Languedoc, as the chateau of Lavagnac has been dubbed, to recall the memories of the d'Alzon family who had lived here for so many years, but which has now fallen into a sad state of disrepair. On this sunny day, Mr. Bernard Bals, members of whose family worked for the d'Alzon's and who himself has maintained a love for the family, especially its most distinguished son, Emmanuel d'Alzon, led the pilgrims along their way, giving the history of the chateau and explaining the life of its occupants, especially that of Emmanuel whose parents moved here when he was quite young. He related how d’Alzon returned here often once ordained and once he had founded the Assumptionist Congregation, in order to visit his family and just relax. As Mr. Bals explained, Fr. d’Alzon proved himself in many ways to be a prophet, a man well ahead of his time in so many ways.
