Living the Word
Reflect on the Sunday readings with Fr Frank Bird SM and Bev McDonald Marist Laity NZ. Reflections are for groups or individuals. They are written for young adults but great for all ages
To be Marist means WELCOME. Mary embraces everyone as part of God’s family with compassion for people and creation. She embraced God’s call to serve her Son, and His mission. You are invited to that call in her name. Sub Mariae Nomine (Latin)..
A spirituality open to all. Lay Marists are ordinary people who follow Jesus in Mary’s way. We make no religious vow or profession but are attentive to God in everyday life; family, work, prayer, relationships, church, social and community life. All ages are welcome.
There are many ways to connect and belong; so browse or share these web resources and contact us to discover more.
