Today, we continue in the venture to renew the spirit and mission of the Church as a place of collaboration and true spiritual enrichment.
We invite you to discover that true strength is found in gentleness. Marist spirituality invites us to embrace this liberating truth, which comes to us from the heart of God, by following Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Like Mary, we too can hear the gentle rhythms of the grace of God in our lives by making our own her manner of thinking, judging, feeling, and acting.
Mary's way is a direct path to the divine heart of mercy.
