Over 150 years ago Cardinal Wiseman invited the Religious of the Assumption to establish a house of adoration in the Diocese of Westminster. Maria Assumpta Chapel in Kensington Square is the continuing legacy of Cardinal Wiseman’s request; each day the sisters celebrate the Divine Office and are joined by others for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The charism of the Religious of the Assumption can be summed up in two words: adoration and education. Milleret House, a house of welcome adjoining Maria Assumpta Chapel, hosts a range of educational activities. Retreat and study days provide an opportunity for people to grow in knowledge of the faith and in their relationship with God and the beautiful setting is ideal for those simply wanting to spend time in silent reflection.
Milleret House is named after St Marie Eugenie, the foundress of the Religious of the Assumption. During the Year of Consecrated Life a series of retreat days are being offered on the teaching of some of the great consecrated men and women in the Church’s history. It is possible to book now to attend retreat days on St Augustine, Julian of Norwich, St Ignatius Loyola and St Marie Eugenie, and more events are planned for the latter part of 2015.
