The third national Marist Youth celebration

26/06/2005: United States

160 Marist Youth from Marist schools in the United States and Mexico gathered at Marist College during the recent Memorial Day weekend for Marist Youth 2005 sponsored by the Marist Evangelization and Vocation Offices.
The 160 students represented 12 Marist schools here in the U.S. and one in Mexico. The focus of Marist Youth is on what it means to be young, Catholic, and Marist. The participants listened to presentations given by Brothers, laymen and women, and young adults and college students. The themes presented centered around what it means to be a “Marist Youth”. The group looked at the qualities of Marcellin’s that they could relate to and imitate in today’s world.
This is the third national Marist Youth celebration. From past national meetings, two schools had begun Marist Youth groups at their schools. The students from St. Joseph Academy and Mt. St. Michael Academy spoke about the projects that their Marist Youth groups have been involved in over the past few years so as to encourage other schools to begin Marist Youth meetings that take place during the year.
A major focus of the meeting is to come closer to Jesus through Mary, in the Marist tradition. Students from Miami (Columbus, St. Brendan, and Msgr. Pace), Roselle Catholic, Centro Universitario Montejo, and Central Catholic organized prayer services around the various themes of Marist Youth 2005.
Students left Marist College with new insights into what it means to be “Marist,” and a wonderful understanding that “Marist” is much bigger than their own schools.
One of the highlights of this year’s Marist Youth 2005 gathering was the presence of students and faculty from Centro Universitario Montejo in Mexico. Both the Mexican Marist Youth and the American Marist Youth hope that this gathering is just the beginning of a wonderful relationship between these two parts of the Marist world.
