Reflection and News for November, for both Marist Laity and Marian Mothers
Push Re-set on Your Day
Life can be difficult and complex at times, but also with amazing highlights and joys. It can sometimes be useful to use practical 're-sets' - rather like de-fragging a computer - to 'unclutter' ourselves, and become more open to one another and to the Holy Spirit, as Mary was.

Father Jean Claude Colin, Founder; Pray for Us.
Fr Colin's spiritual and practical legacy was immense.
There is a new website to help promote the cause of Fr J C Colin. The URL address remains the same. Check it out HERE
We ask Fr Colin to pray that Lay and Religious Marists will again catch the vision to be instruments of Gods mercy in Mary's name. May we work to build a Marian church of mercy for the greater glory of God and the honour of his mother. We pray for the full flowering of Fr Colin's vision for Laity. Jean Claude Colin website

While targeted to younger adults it is ideal for all age groups. Marist Laity has accepted responsibility for ensuring this scripture resource continues to be available. Let's stay in the Word and Live the Word as Mary did.
To be Marist is to want to encounter Jesus, to love, serve and follow him in Marys way and to share his love with others. We encourage the spiritual growth of families, lay groups and individuals wishing to grow in their Christian journey. Mary wants to gather everyone into Gods family and all are welcome. More...
