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.
Pope Francis: End to Child-Soldiers
That the scandal of child‐soldiers may be eliminated the world over.
Pope Francis - December 2016
Sowing the Joy of Fourvière in Brownsville, Texas
Dare to dream in 'Cameron’ at San Felipe de Jesús in Brownsville, Texas
From this promise two hundred years ago many Marist congregations were born. There are now many Marist Laity all over the world and many Marist projects including the humble Marist parish of San Felipe de Jesús in Cameron Park, Brownsville, Texas on the southern border of the United States with Mexico.On the 6th of July we began celebrating — 210 people: 120 children and 90 youth celebrated the promise and the dream of Fourvière with "Sembrando Alegria" "Sowing Joy," the joy of Fourvière. This program began with a three-day orientation for the youth in which they prepared to run the two-week program with children.

World Day of Migrants and Refugees • Jan. 15, 2017
“Child Migrants, the Vulnerable and the Voiceless”
Message of His Holiness Pope Francis
"...on the occasion of the annual World Day of Migrants and Refugees, I feel compelled to draw attention to the reality of child migrants, especially the ones who are alone. In doing so I ask everyone to take care of the young, who in a threefold way are defenceless: they are children, they are foreigners, and they have no means to protect themselves. I ask everyone to help those who, for various reasons, are forced to live far from their homeland and are separated from their families."
We are told that the early Christian communities were one in mind and heart, and held all things in common. The communities were places of prayer filled with the Spirit of Christ, where people gathered in peace and in reconciliation, justice and joy. They were places where one might find understanding, acceptance, and mercy.
The very attributes ascribed to the early Christian communities are the very values all Marists are called to live today. Wherever they may minister, be it in schools or parishes, colleges or hospitals, missions or shrines, you will find them of one mind and one heart, living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Criminal Justice Reform Decision
The Republican leadership in the House of Representatives will be deciding whether to bring the criminal justice reform bills up for a vote this September.
Our interfaith coalition is organizing for our networks to contact our representatives urging them to have this vote before the elections.
There is agreement that our criminal justice system does not work, breaks families and communities, and costs the taxpayer far too much!
