Thank you for being part of Mary's work this year. Your prayer, support and encouragement means a great deal. Reflections begin in February.
While we remember those in need, especially in Australia and Puerto Rico, we wish you, your families and communities a New year filled with Christ, open to the Holy Spirit and to encounter with all God's people.
We look forward to 2020 as a year of mission and hope for the Marist family,

Will you make living the Word your priority resolution for 2020?
The Mass Readings for every Sunday of the Year are available with reflections to ponder in your own time . You will be graced.
These Reflections by Fr Frank Bird SM and/or Bev McDonald,(Marist Laity NZ and ACSD) will help you grow in Living the Word. You can sign up to receive them HERE
They are ideal for either individuals or groups and can be used equally well before or after each Sunday. Check it out and share it in your parish.
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.
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
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...
