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.

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.

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.
