The European Province of the Assumption

Assumptionists at the service of unity

Our founder

Our congregation, the Augustinians of the Assumption (A.A.) or “Assumptionnists”, was founded in 1845 by Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon. It is at once modern and steeped in the Tradition, rooted in the common life in view of proclaiming the Good News to people. Our motto prompt us to work for the coming of Christ’s Reign in us and around us:

“Thy Kingdom Come!”

Our life

Today, we are present on five continents. As disciples of Saint Augustine, we live our faith, prayer and apostolate in community. Together, we are called to face the three great challenges of religious indifference, exclusion and injustice. We sum it up as follows:

“Servants of unity in a divided world”

Our mission

Assumption’s activities range from theological research to far-flung missions, with a real penchant for the Eastern Churches and the search for Unity, vocations in the service of the Church, and the communication of the Christian message through social action and the media.

Join the adventure as a lay person, volunteer, donor, religious…

An alliance

Our charism has led lay people to want to live the spirituality of the Assumption and to put it into practice in their lives. Some of them have committed themselves to “a way of life”. Together, they animate the association of

“Lays Assumption Alliance”
