Pray for victims and families of the Eruption on Whakaari.
Please join us in Prayer. Kia Kaha; New Zealand stands with you.

It is tragic that many have lost their lives or been injured in the White Island eruptions yesterday. Our hearts and minds go out to all those impacted including those who are enduring the numbing wait for news. We pray for each of them and their families and loved ones. We also pray for all the rescue workers and the health professionals.

Whakaari/White Island is a marine volcano 50 km off the North Island of New Zealand. The official death toll stands at five, with a further eight still officially listed as missing with grave prospects. They are from Australia, America, Britain, China, Malaysia and New Zealand. 47 people were on the island yesterday: 31 are still in hospital, while 3 have been discharged. Kia Kaha; New Zealand is with you in solidarity and prayer.

Come Lord Jesus. Pour out your love and mercy. Amen

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

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 Marists but by Mary herself. It is work done on her terms.
