Concern for young people remains a priority as in the early days of the Congregation. Since they will be the society of tomorrow, the sisters should prepare them to assume responsibility for the building of a more evangelical world.

Journeying Together

Through our activities we aim to help young people find meaning in their lives, and contribute to their human and spiritual formation. We rejoice in the gift that young people are to the Church and the world today.

“We are convinced that our charism, by its community dimension, its international character, its strong spirituality and its engagement for the transformation of society, can respond to the deepest desires of today’s young people. As Assumption Together, we believe that each person has a mission in life. Thus, we want to journey alongside the young people we meet, to accompany them in their vocational search and to respond to their thirst for spirituality.”
