Augustinians of the Assumption - United States

Our Mission

Centered in Jesus Christ
and responsive to the needs of the time,
we, the Assumptionists
in the United States Region,
are men of prayer and study
living in fraternal community.
Committing ourselves
to collaborative leadership and formation
in the Church,
we teach, preach and foster education
in all its forms.
Impelled by the spirit of the founder
“we go wherever God is threatened in man and
man is threatened as image of God.”
(Rule of Life 4) “Our very reason for being,
as Assumptionists, is to be found in our motto:
Thy Kingdom Come.”
(Father Emanuel d’Alzon, AA)

The spirit of Assumption may be summarized in these few words: love of our Lord,
of the Blessed Virgin, his Mother,
and of the Church, his Spouse.
(Father d’Alzon, Directory, I, 1)
