Assumption International Youth Pilgrimage!

Friday, August 26, 2016

An Assumption International Youth Pilgrimage!  A great way to celebrate the 200th birthdays of Saint Marie Eugenie and Mother Therese Emmanuel, co-foundresses of the Religious of the Assumption.

Bringing together young adults and Sisters from the 32 countries in which we live and serve, the pilgrimage will journey through France from August 16 - 26, 2017, visiting places significant to our Foundresses and reflecting on the theme:  "Called to live as fully as possible!"

(The following information applies only to the U.S. Province.  If you're interested in joining the pilgrimage and are in another country, please inquire with the Sisters there about their arrangements for the pilgrimage.  Thank you!) 

Who can join the pilgrimage?
Anyone from 18-40 years of age who wants to grow in her/his relationship with God and with the Assumption.  Someone open to embrace internationality and ready to have fun in many different languages!

Where will the pilgrimage go?
Arrival:             Paris
Days 1 - 2:        Preisch - Metz  (where St. Marie Eugenie was born and raised)
Days 3 - 5:        Lyon via Taize  (overnight stay in Taize)
Days 6 - 10:      Paris

How can I sign up?
Fill out the application form.  Send it in with a $100 deposit.  You'll hear back from the Sisters right away.  Deadline:  December 31, 2016.

How much does it cost?
$500 for the pilgrimage (food, lodging & transportation in France) plus airfare from the USA to France.

Is that all?
All pilgrims will participate in pre-pilgrimage activities to prepare for the event.  Be ready to share about the experience once you're back in the USA.
