Dear friends,

I am pleased to welcome you to the web site of the US region of the Assumptionists. We are confident that it will serve as an important complement to our Congregational web site and provide helpful information regarding the people, places, and events of the region. A special welcome to those who are visiting the site for the first time. For those who have made it a point to take a look in the past, you may be surprised at the new layout and the amount of up to date reporting contained here. For this I extend a particular word of appreciation to Tomasz Kierul and to Sister Clare Bertero, OSF, for spearheading and coordinating this new effort.

And there’s much news and activity to report, much of it centered around the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of our founder, Emmanuel d’Alzon. What a grace it has been for us to join with our own families and with the extended lay/religious Assumption family to honor and to rediscover the vision which animated the foundation of the community in the middle of the nineteenth century and continues to inspire its life and work here and now. The Bicentennial Regional Retreat, A Path of Holiness… in the footsteps of Emmanuel d’Alzon, preached by our own Richard Lamoureux, Superior General, was a signal event in the region’s observance of this special anniversary.

The Assumptionists

Signs of life abound: the ongoing revitalization of the Assumptionist Center in Brighton, the opening of a new vocational residence for Assumption College students, the strengthening of a distinctive Assumptionist presence at St. Anne’s parish and shrine in Fiskdale. As we share our lives more deliberately with lay friends and collaborators, we are all the more aware of the movements of the Spirit in us and around us. It is that Spirit, we pray, that forms the heart of our regional web site. We are glad to offer it to you and welcome your participation.
