Marist Laity Website Redesign
Marists try to follow Jesus as Mary did, bringing God’s presence into daily life. By belonging in the Association of Mary we try to make this real everyday by growing in a sense of being open to God, like Mary, in every aspect of ordinary life: our family, work, prayer, relationships, church, social and community life.
We try to live with simplicity and generosity in the ordinary routines of life. Having a special bond with Mary, we remain close to her, and in that way, become like her and grow in her way of following Jesus. Marist virtues when lived, conform us to Christ as they did Mary. Mary wants everyone to be part of God’s family. She helps us be open to the Holy Spirit, keeping Jesus at the centre of our lives.
