WELCOME TO ASSUMPTION MISSION ASSOCIATES

Assumption Mission Associates (AMA) is a ministry of young adults in collaboration with the Religious of the Assumption Sisters in their mission to effect change in society through prayer, education, and community building. With the Assumption spirit, the AMA volunteers bear witness to Jesus’ love and the Church’s love for people. The relationships that they cultivate transform them as well as the people they serve. They exercise their commitment to service in solidarity and communion, in faith and in trust.

In 1954 the Assumption Sisters founded the Associate Missionaries of the Assumption (AMA), now Assumption Mission Associates, as a way of answering the many appeals of the world.

WHO ARE THE ASSUMPTION MISSION ASSOCIATES?
WHAT DOES AMA VALUE?

FAITH

The AMA experience is an engagement with faith in action- one which is aware of God’s presence at all times, within all people and experiences. This engaged faith seeks to understand and integrate beliefs and interpretations of the Christian faith into practice. This commitment includes personal and communal prayer, study, and liturgy.

 

SERVICE

AMAs are impelled by faith to work for the Christian transformation of society. They serve as partners in mission with the Religious of the Assumption. In ministries of presence and education, AMAs provide direct service to the poor and marginalized while also being transformed by relationships and reflection on those experiences.

SOLIDARITY

AMAs are challenged to commit themselves to the common good, to see themselves as responsible for the well-being of others, and to “work with,” rather than “do for” in their ministries. This value, deeply rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, entrusts them with the work of affirming the beauty of life, the integrity of creation, and the value of each person. Faced with situations of inequality, poverty, and injustice, AMAs commit themselves to build a society where there is more justice, more solidarity, and more humanity.

COMMUNITY

AMAs live in close-knit, joyful, communities characterized by a commitment to personal and communal growth, the values of a simple lifestyle, and the willingness to put “we” before “me” in thought and practice. This includes intentionality in the ways resources are shared and spent, cultivating a spirit of welcome and hospitality, and taking an active role in the community of AMAs, Religious of the Assumption, and ministry.

We offer five unique volunteer sites, two in the U.S. and three abroad - something for everyone!

"Each of us has a mission on earth. It is simply a question of seeking how God can use us to make His Gospel known and lived."

— Saint Marie Eugénie, foundress of the Religious of the Assumption
