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’ prayer intention for February
"That we may take good care of creation - a gift freely given - cultivating and protecting it for future generations."

Lent is a time for reflection and stillness, a time for pondering
as Mary must have done on the extraordinary events
of her Son's Passion, Death and Resurrection.
We hope that you will find these readings and reflections
from Marist Way England helpful on your journey.
Journey with Colin: A doorway to the Marist Project
|Living as brothers
The individual is a totality and a totality is nothing at all. What can we do to make it something? In this fragmented kingdom of the I-me, how can we enliven or reawaken the we, which is more than just hot air, thus allowing each of us to breathe?
Marists are known for being engaged in the world around them and for being deeply involved in the lives of the people they serve. But did you know that they are also known for being a community of prayer and that everything they do comes from prayer?
Marist founder, Jean-Claude Colin, often spoke about the need for Marists to nourish and sustain their spiritual life through prayer, contemplation of God's word, examination of conscience, and spiritual reading so as to discern the inner movement of their heart and the hearts of others. He reminded them that fidelity to the spirit of prayer and to prayer itself is one of their first duties. It is from that prayer that they, like Mary,give birth to the Word of God.
