Welcome to our Marist Blog

Our Marist Blog provides a place for us to share our knowledge and understanding of Marist life and mission.

Our global community commenced in 1817 in France when Fr Marcellin Champagnat established his small community of Brothers in the wake of the Revolution.

Today, we men and women, strive to live St Marcellin's vision of educating young people to contribute enthusiastically to our contemporary world.
