Champagnat was born on May 20, 1789



“Marist News”

20/05/2008: General House

Champagnat was born on May 20, 1789 in the midst of the French Revolution. More than 200 years have passed since then. That infant’s birth was only family news that barely passed the local limits of his village. When Champagnat died the news of his work spread and highlighted the date of his birth. Hundreds of voices have proclaimed the birth of Marcellin as great news for the Church and for the Institute. Today the Institute, this child born of his charism, is present on the five continents and in almost 80 countries. Day after day it is the origin of innovations and good news.

We have chosen the date of May 20, 2008, anniversary of the birth of Champagnat, to initiate a new information project at the service of the Institute: the weekly “Marist News.” This new informational instrument, in its electronic format, is meant to be a messenger of good news for the Marist World. It replaces other publications that have completed their mission. “Update” and “Marist Bulletin” will no longer be published. The growing participation of the laity in the Marist charism, life and mission has prompted this change in both the format and the way of disseminating information. This communication service will include information that is of interest to the brothers and laity alike.

The remodeling of the news service will be accomplished with the electronic edition of a new publication called “Marist News” which will be published in color digital PDF format once a week, having a length of 4 to 6 pages (A4), and will be sent directly to the address of each subscriber to keep them informed of the activities of the General Council and the International Bureaus.

We hope that the birth of this new means of approach to the life of the Institute becomes a long tradition on which brothers and laity, one day, can all congratulate each other.
