ASSUMPTIONIST PRIEST KIDNAPPED - OCTOBER 19, 2012 PDF Print E-mail

.

.

On this day nine years ago, three Assumptionists were kidnapped from Notre-Dame des Pauvres parish Mbau, 22 km from Beni, Democratic Republic of the Congo. We share with you this letter from our Superior General on the five year anniversary of their kidnapping:

“Dear brothers, sisters, and friends,

It has already been five years since our brothers, Jean-Pierre, Edmond and Anselme, were kidnapped by armed soldiers…I am writing this letter with the sole purpose of keeping our hope alive. Christians cannot resign themselves to a state where they allow silence and death to prevail. Our God is a God of life.

I reiterate my friendship with the religious of the Province of Africa and more particularly with the Assumptionists, the Oblates and Orants of the Assumption, and all those in the consecrated life in the diocese of Butembo-Beni. Still today you remain subject to violence and abuse. … I pray as well for the people of North Kivu who regularly endure acts of violence and abuse at the hands of armed factions who criss-cross the region. We Assumptionists stand side by side with this population on whom such evil is exacting a tremendous toll.

PROVINCIAL POST - OVERCOMING SADNESS PDF Print E-mail

.Brooklyn Museum - The Rich Young Man Went Away Sorrowful - James Tissot

The following is a reflection on the Sunday Gospel for October 10, 2021.

I’m trying to work this out for myself. What’s the role of the poor in the story of the rich man in today’s Gospel? After telling Jesus he has faithfully observed the commandments from his youth, he is summoned by Jesus to sell all that he has and give to the poor. We know that he goes away sad.

A SURPRISING NEW CHAPTER: WELCOMING HAITIAN MIGRANTS IN EL PASO, TX PDF Print E-mail

.

Haitian migrants began arriving at our temporary shelter for families in El Paso, TX, and the local Assumptionist community alongside many dedicated volunteers is working around the clock to serve these men, women and children who come to us in need.

Two groups have come and gone in the span of three short days. Each group has about 50 individuals, composed mostly of small families. As we served a simple dinner we quickly learned that, for many of the migrants, it was their first meal in five or six days. They are incredibly grateful to accept the small things we offer them - a roof over their heads, a dry blanket, a shower - the basic necessities that we tend to take for granted.

.

The community of the Assumptionist Center, that is the religious, residents and staff, gathered last Friday to officially begin the new academic year by observing Adveniat Day.  Both new members and those who have returned began our Adveniat evening with prayer, followed by a welcome by Fr. Simon who is the superior of the house. Raphael Yabut, our interim resident coordinator while Bro. Blair is on sabbatical, then asked us to reflect and discuss in small groups what has nourished our community life during the past year and what are the areas in which we need to grow. This activity was followed by an interactive, energetic and hope-filled open discussion by the whole group. Michelle topped off the gathering with another one of her outstanding dinners. Let the year begin!
