Congratulations to Angelicum Alumna Mother Mary Assumpta
Mother Mary Assumpta Long, O.P., Mother Superior of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, has announced the purchase of the John Paul II Cultural Center as a House of Studies in Washington, D.C. for the almost 100 sister-strong congregation. In a statement on the move, Mother Assumpta said that "We believe that the ultimate acquisition of this building... represents an opportunity that is aligned with the visions of our community, Pope John Paul II and the archdiocese of Detroit. It is a wonderful way to build upon the intention of the Center to bring the message of His Holiness to contemporary culture and promote vocations, and it provides yet another connection to his influence in our community and the incredibly generous donors to all these venerable institutions."
John Paul II is one of the most distinguished alumnus of the Angelicum.
Mother Assumpta is an alumna of the Angelicum earning a Licentiate in Sacred Theology.
