Number 100 of “Marist News”

15/04/2010: General House

On 20 May 2008, coinciding with the anniversary of the Founder’s birthday, was born “Marist News”. Today we celebrate the appearance of Number 100, a few weeks before it completes two years of life. It has spent the time giving news about the life of the Institute. Nearly two years of making us present in your communities, in the fraternities, or in the homes of the more than 4,000 subscribers who receive it punctually each week. The growing interest shown for receiving this news electronically has been one of the incentives for arriving promptly for the weekly appointment.

The successor of “Latest News”, this bulletin began its progress facing new challenges. It was fitted with a format of professional cut which included colour as an indispensible element in its illustrations. It was edited in digital format and introduced itself into the homes of its recipients by means of free subscription via the internet. At the same time, it had to find the technical formula to pass quickly from the machines producing it to reach its destinations. These technical challenges remained hidden among the complex connections of the global network, but they were present.

The rich source of information is Marist life throughout the world. MN has an international face in its composition in four languages in the origin of its content. The news items which make up MN proceed from the web old.champagnat.org but the open windows of its pages, with their weekly selection, are its complement. We deliver 854 copies in English, 2,486 in Spanish, 503 in French and 599 in Portuguese. En total: 4,456.

At the same time as we thank all our subscribers and readers for the reception they give MN, we wish to thank God, Mary, and Champagnat for the gift of the Marist charism which has been the cause of so much good news from around the world.
