Become a Friend

Lay friends have always been part of the Assumption family as disciples of the Lord, friends and co-workers.  They bring the density of life ‘in the world’ to the community and profit of the spiritual advantages of the religious community.  They are women and men attracted to St. Marie Eugenie and the spirituality of the Assumption: to extend the Kingdom of God in society by prayer, study, and service.

Friends of the Assumption  are affiliated with communities of Assumption Sisters established in over thirty countries.  Lay Communities of the Assumption are Friends who, while remaining in their work and families, follow the lay Rule of Life, committing themselves more deeply and permanently.

Our relationships with lay friends invigorate the spirit of our mission and enrich our lives. Join one of our communities to pray the Liturgy of the Hours or spend time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Drop in for conversation that nourishes the spirit. The doors of an Assumption community are always open.
