The Assumption | Assumption Family

The Assumption family is made up of five congregations, which, with their particular charism, live in community the life of Jesus and work for the extension of the Kingdom. The history of this family is marked by mutual help, tensions, joys, difficulties and shared hopes. With the Sisters of the Assumption, there are also
