How can 300 days change your life? Come and serve with the Assumption Mission Associates in Worcester, MA!

Our program site in Worcester, MA serves many on the margins of this big city. Our Assumption Sisters are very concerned about providing educational support to immigrants and refugees. We have an after-school mentoring program for inner-city children and an ESOL program for immigrants both programs are held at St. Peter's parish. 

St. Peter's is a beautiful, melting pot of people and Msgr. Scollen is a priest of the people. St. Peter's has served those struggling with food insecurity by sponsoring a very large food pantry, and now a free medical clinic. There are also opportunities to teach in the religious education program or to be involved in parish ministry. The people of Worcester are diverse, and they truly care about each other and raising up those on the margins.

The life of our volunteers in Worcester is never boring! We have a community garden, a Friday knitting circle, and an after-school program for adolescent girls called Girls with DREAMS. Community life is comfortable in a former rectory, with lots of space, and a close walk to St. Peter's. 

Our volunteers consider their time spent with our Assumption Sisters as an integral part of their year! We are hoping that by this fall we will be able to resume dinners and prayer opportunities with the Sisters. We are closely connected with Assumption University, and our volunteers are welcome to participate in all liturgical offerings at the chapel, and Campus Center. 

Check out our website - assumptionvolunteers.org to read personal stories from some of our 160 alums. Our director, Sandy Piwko would be happy to speak with you if you would like to learn more about our small and intimate program! We have many alums who would love to share their experience too!
