FOUNDERS WEEK 2021 PDF Print E-mail

01--01-01--AU

Founders Week, an annual tradition at Assumption, is an opportunity to remember the University's founders, the Assumptionists who in 1904 welcomed the first class of students to the institution and their many collaborators who have contributed to the growth of Assumption over the past 117 years.

The theme chosen for our celebration is "It's All about Soul!" It was inspired by our new Mission Statement, approved by the Board in May and now being officially launched during Founders Week.  The Statement says that, at Assumption, we "provide students with an education that shapes their souls…"  This week is an opportunity for all of us to think again about Assumption's mission and to measure the challenges that it presents to us.  We'll be able to do this in a variety of ways during the week.  The Founders Week Committee hopes you will be able to participate in as many of the week's events as possible.

Check out the AU app for more information about the Week.  An announcement will be sent out on each day of the week to remind you of upcoming events.  Here is a summary schedule of the week's events:

Nicholas DiAntonio, a 2012 graduate of Assumption University, shares about the impact of his Assumption education and his experience now as a math teacher and coach at Natick High School.

In Fr. Barry Bercier A.A.'s theology class, he writes, “We talked a lot about the importance of raising young men to be positive contributors to society and how now, more than ever, we need strong young men because there are so many challenges in this world,” he said. “Fr. Barry’s emphasis on the importance of developing young individuals is something I really value and bring to my everyday teaching and coaching – not just teaching them the X’s and O’s of football, but the importance of treating everyone with compassion and developing positive relationships.”

SADIKI'S ORDINATION IN QUEBEC PDF Print E-mail

.

The sun shone brightly in Québec on August 14th, the day of Sadiki Kyavumba’s priestly ordination. This young Assumptionist was ordained by Cardinal Gerald Cyprien Lacroix, current Archbishop of Québec. Approximately 140 were in attendance in a covid-friendly atmosphere in the chapel of Montmartre. During the singing of the Litany of Saints by a fellow African brother, Sadiki lay prostrate during the emotional ritual. Later, during the Mass, a beautiful hymn was sung in Swahili. Father Dennis Gallagher, North American Provincial of the Assumptionists, vested Fr. Sadiki in his blue chasuble and stole. Cardinal Lacroix presented Fr. Sadiki to the congregation for his blessing. Following the ceremony, Fr. Sadiki greeted guests, including many Lay Assumptionists, as they gathered on the lawn of Montmartre.

By: Veronika Jaster

I’d like to sincerely thank the Assumptionist community for the opportunity to serve with the Congregation in Mexico and encounter God’s love during my time there. I spent eighteen days at the Assumptionist parish center in Tlilapan, Veracruz. Throughout the volunteer work and the cultural immersion, it was a joy to serve, learn, and share life with all the people I met.
