The Assumptionists are a Roman Catholic religious family, a community of apostolic brothers and priests.
We are formally called Augustinians of the Assumption. Our Rule of Life, together with our spirituality, is based on the writings and theology of Saint Augustine (d. 430 A.D.). We are convinced that living together in a spirit of brotherly love has much apostolic value and can be a sign of the Kingdom of God in today's societies. Accordingly, community life has a great deal of importance for us. Assumptionists focus their apostolic energies in three main directions: ecumenism, work with the poor, and serious study in the broadest sense of the word.

The Assumptionists have never limited themselves to defined types of apostolic works. Our motto is Adveniat Regnum Tuum - Thy Kingdom Come. Accordingly, all that advances the coming of the Reign of God has always been deemed worthy of our apostolic energy. From the very beginning, the Assumptionists have been in charge of a wide variety of apostolic works. This continues to be true to this very day. Emmanuel d'Alzon wrote,

"Our spiritual life, our religious substance, our reason for being as Augustinians of the Assumption is to be found in our motto Adveniat Regnum Tuum the coming ofthe Reign of God in our souls, the coming of the Reign of God in the world."
