Be Part of BIGGER Picture



Marist Solidarity Campaign 2012

12/03/2012: Australia

The annual Marist Solidarity campaign is a program organized by MAPS the International development agency of the Marist Brothers in Australia. It is an Australia wide educational, campaign usually conducted during Lent in more than 50 Australian Marist associated schools. This year the theme is "Be Part of BIGGER Picture".

The notion of a BIGGER picture relies on staff and students joining the dots to the smaller pictures of individuals and communities in the developing world.

Solidarity in the Marist tradition, means we choose to stand with others who have less capacity to transform their reality and to work with them to create their own liberation. It is a noble task; a lofty ideal. However, in the ordinariness of life across the countries your school communities are linked to through MAPS, many young people still struggle for their dignity, access to education and their rights.

In a world where social networking keeps us in our own worlds

sometimes it is necessary to break away
to log off
to take off the headphones
to simply fall off the grid
so we can see the greater purpose
outside of our own little world.

What started as one man’s dream
is now a family spanned across 77 countries.
You are not the only Marist in the world –
you are part of the bigger picture.
Marist Solidarity

-           a call to action
-          a relationship between Marists.

Be part of the bigger picture.
