On May 4th and 6th, 2019, we share the fruits of the Assembly of the Congregation with the Sisters of Spain and Portugal in Barcelona the which took place in April 2019
The sisters welcomed with great interest the information received on the different territories as well as the report of Marie Françoise Phelippeau (General Superior) on the life of the Congregation. On the other hand, there were documents which will required work on the priorities for the next two years. These were read and shared by groups who have responded well to the wishes of the sisters and the global reality that we live.
Then, the JPIC commission of the territory, (Justice-Peace and Integrity of the Creation) formed by Sisters Victoria Vallés, Carmen Oliveras, Eugenia Hueto (from Spain) and Mª Luisa Remuge (from Portugal), presented her project of animation of the communities.
As well as Sister Pilar Trillo, who presented the project of the International Secretary JPIC of the Assumption Family and innovations in our Website.

S.Germaine Musakata(Congolese Little Sister) thanked the Congregation for giving her the opportunity to study theology at the Jesuit University of Granada and the sisters of the community who accompanied him during these years.This mission was a period of human growth and faith, not without efforts, responsibility and work. At the end of this last class, she will return to her country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.
At the time of the evaluation, we heard Thanksgiving to God from many little sisters for “the communion ” with the Congregation, because God continues to rely on us to build His Kingdom, because we are a Congregation that listens to life and allows itself to be converted by the poorest.
With a grateful heart, full of confidence in the Congregational body and hope in God’s dream for the future … we are gone again.
