5 Causes to Support this Giving Tuesday PDF Print E-mail

Easter celebrations at our parish in Tlilapan, Veracruz, which serves the poor and indigenous populations

“Nothing brings down more blessings from above than thanking God for what he has done for us already...and the more sincere, loving and spontaneous our thanksgiving the more abundantly will he pour his blessings into our hearts, until that day when we will receive that gift of gifts once and for all, God himself!” - Venerable Emmanuel d’Alzon

In this season of giving thanks, we are especially grateful for the benefactors who support us and the works that we sponsor; whether it’s a school for children affected by violence in the Congo, pastoral ministry with the indigenous communities in Mexico, or ministry with migrants here in our very own country - we have you to thank for the continuation and success of these ministries.

Knowing the varied interests and passions of our benefactors, we’ve compiled a list of 5 unique causes for those who would like to participate in Giving Tuesday. We invite you to prayerfully consider supporting the cause that is closest to your heart:

Giving Tuesday: Bring hope to Congolese children PDF Print E-mail

.

Prince of Peace School, founded by the Assumptionists, is located in one of the most dangerous regions of Africa - North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The region has been marked by seemingly endless massacres of civilians by various armed groups. The school, which opened in the fall of 2016, is a project filled with hope for all involved.

The following excerpt from Le Pélerin Magazine describes how the school was founded in direct response to the violence in the region:

“In the face of the suffering of street children, wandering through the streets of Beni after witnessing their parents being massacred in their villages, the Assumptionists had to act.”  Fr. Protais Kabila, then the provincial of the Assumptionists in the eastern region of the DRC (the capital of which is Kinshasa) still recalls that day in 2016 when he convinced his confrères to build a school. But not just any kind. For these orphans of war, the teaching would be centered on non-violence. Its name describes an entire program: Peace of Peace. With money given by friends, he built 8 classrooms on a piece of the Congregation’s property on the outskirts of downtown Beni, an ever-growing metropolis, with 100,000 in the city center alone.

FR. ROLAND CELEBRATES HIS 95TH BIRTHDAY PDF Print E-mail

.

Last week we celebrated a special occasion for the Assumption Family; the patriarch of our province, Fr. Roland Guilmain, turned 95!

Originally from Nashua, NH, Fr. Roland made his first profession as an Assumptionist in 1948 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1953 in Quebec.

Fr. Roland has had many roles over the years, ranging from professor, retreat director, provincial superior, pastor, treasurer, the list goes on. His docility and availability have made him a great gift to our province over the years.

PROVINCIAL POST - ANXIETY OR DISTRESS: DELIVER US, O LORD PDF Print E-mail

.Our Father Painting by Jen Norton

... by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress.

These words form part of what is formally called the embolism, the short prayer said by the priest after the recitation of the Lord’s prayer at Mass. The intent of the prayer, which dates from the early Church, is to provide a gloss or commentary on the last petition of the Our Father, “Deliver us from evil.” In the most recent English translation, a more literal rendering of the Latin text from which it is taken, the words “may we be … safe from all distress” replaces the freer translation dating from the time just after the Second Vatican Council, “protect us from all anxiety.” In both instances, the Latin word is perturbatione which we might use in English in its verb form, “to be perturbed”, but rarely as a noun.

SEND Service/Immersion Trips are Returning in Spring Break! PDF Print E-mail

.

.

After a two year hiatus due to Covid-19, Campus Ministry is thrilled to announce that Assumption's popular SEND service/immersion trips are returning in Spring Break 2022. For years, Assumption students have traveled to various parts of the United States and to international sites to serve among the poor and needy, to develop relationships with those living in poverty, and to reflect on how this experience invites them to deepen their faith and consider how their lives can positively impact the poor among our sisters and brothers throughout the world. Many Assumption graduates regard their SEND trip as one of the most profound and transformative experiences of their time at Assumption.

On this trip, you can also take various medications in case of unforeseen circumstances, but you should not take generic Viagra on such a trip.

REMEMBERING DECEASED FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS IN NOVEMBER PDF Print E-mail

.

.

Dear Members of the Assumption Community,

Beginning with All Saints Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls Day (Nov. 2), the month of November has traditionally been a time to remember our deceased loved ones in prayer. A remembrance shrine will be set up during the month of November in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Assumption. Visitors to the Chapel will be invited to write the names of deceased family members and friends in a remembrance book, and other members of the Assumption community are invited to send in names to be placed at the remembrance shrine by going to https://www.assumption.edu/student-experience/spiritual-life/prayers-deceased. We will remember all of these deceased family members and friends whenever the Assumption community gathers for prayer in the Chapel during the month of November.

Mass will be celebrated at 5:00 PM in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit on Monday, November 1 for the Solemnity of All Saints. Because November 1 falls on a Monday this year, All Saints is not a holyday of obligation this year, but all members of the Assumption community are welcome to participate in Mass at 5:00 PM, as well as Morning Prayer at 8:00 AM and Evening Prayer at 5:35 PM

May God welcome our loved ones into eternal life and surround us with comfort and hope as we grieve and remember them.

Deacon Paul Covino
Director of Campus Ministry
