About Us

Assumption Volunteers and the Assumption in the World Today

Assumption Volunteers is an initiative of the Religious of the Assumption, a Catholic religious congregation of women active in 34 countries of the world. Their mission statement is:

"We are inspired by a vision of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God on earth. With our many friends and associates we strive to make the earth a place of glory for God, and humanity a people that reflects that glory.

"We are women of faith:

  • living together in communities
  • passionate about God
  • passionate about people

"We strive:

  • to discover the good in each person and help them develop it
  • to forge strong characters
  • to give young people roots and wings

"Convinced that each of us has a mission on earth, we want to help people discover the meaning of their lives and how they can be of service in the world. Assumption Volunteers is one of the ways we do this."

The Assumption Volunteer programme is for men and women, aged 20 and over, who are open to personal and spiritual growth and who want to share in the Sisters' charism and work.
