Your Invitation to Explore

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.

Today is a time of great change

The conditions that apply to doing Mary's work are not conditions set by Marist's but by Mary herself. It is work done on her terms.

Fr Jean-Claude Colin: Founder, pray for us.
Novena for the Intercession of Jean-Claude Colin

Fr Colin's spiritual and practical legacy was immense.

The Novena through the Intercession of Jean Claude Colin is:

God our Father, in your servant Jean-Claude Colin you gave your people a zealous priest and religious founder dedicated to serving the Church in the spirit of Mary.
We ask for the glorification of your faithful servant in the midst of the Church and pray that you grant us the favour which we ask through his intercession.
(mention Request)
This we ask through Christ Our Lord and in the name of Mary
If you receive any graces through the intercession of Venerable Jean-Claude Colin, please advise:

Postulator, Padri Maristi
Via Alessandro Poeria 63,
001552 Rome, Italy.

Here is a YouTube video of excerpts of final mass in Rome for the end of the Colin Year.

We ask Fr Colin to pray that religious and Lay men and women 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 and we pray for the full flowering of Fr Colin's vision for Laity. Jean Claude Colin website
A site has been created to give information about Fr Colin, provide weekly extracts of his words for reflection and promote his Cause.
