Mission Statement

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. Young women and men committed themselves to work and live with Assumption communities in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe, sharing their vision of the Christian transformation of society and working to make it happen. Today, the work continues in Worcester, MA, Chaparral, NM, The Philippines and U.K. While at their volunteer sites, AMA's find new insight into God's gifts through service to others. It is through their service that they come to understand more fully the rule of life of The Religious of the Assumption: "Love never remains idle: it makes us creative and impels us to heed all the appeals of the world and to find new ways of answering them." The mission of AMA today, as it began over 60 years ago, remains the same and continues to enrich the lives of volunteers, religious, and those served.
