We are deeply grateful for our partners in making Marie-Eugenie and the Assumption charism alive through the apostolate, mission, and presence of the Religious of the Assumption in Mindanao.
In the late 1970, Assumption’s choice for its insertion in Mindanao was in Kadingilan. It was a response to the challenge of the Congregation to mobilize the Assumption’s forces towards the service of the poor, as well as to Bishop’s Claver’s invitation to his prelature in Bukidnon. After more than twenty years in Kadingilan, the Assumption Sisters started a community in Kibangay on May 31, 1998. Their mission was to make Jesus Christ known and loved through Christian education of the young.
The Religious of the Assumption is grateful to the Diocese of Malaybalay and presented the Plaque of Recognition to the Diocese of Malaybalay and to Mrs. Elisa G. Toledo, who has been with Assumption from the foundation of Kibangay.
The Assumption came to Kauswagan in June 1980 upon the pressing invitation of Bishop Capalla. He wanted a contemplative presence to witness to the value of prayer among his flock. In his invitation, he wrote : “I would like the Assumption to come to my Prelature primarily to deepen in our local Church its contemplative dimension… To a Church that took as a primary task the pursuit of justice for its people, it must necessarily be a Church that prays.”
The Religious of the Assumption is thankful to the Diocese of Iligan and presented the Plaque of Recognition to the Diocese of Iligan and to Ms. Evelyn Yee, who has been the principal of St. Vincent’s Academy for many years.
The Religious of the Assumption’s insertion in Xavier University began in June 1983 upon the invitation of Fr. Ernesto Javier, S.J. then University President. The sisters came to give a religious presence on the campus and take an active involvement in the Xavier Campus Ministries.
The Religious of the Assumption presented the Plaque of Recognition to the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, to the Society of Jesus of Xavier University, and to the Namaste Prayer Group.
