The Marists commemorate 60 years of mission in Angola

21/06/2014: Angola

Present in the country since 1954, today the Marist Brothers conduct three schools where they teach 3,000 students : The Marist school of « Christ the King », in the capital Luanda ; the Marist teacher training school of « Saint Joseph », in Kuito-Bié, and the primary school « Saint Marcellin Champagnat », at N’Dalatando.

These establishments are free and enjoy the support of the Angolan government which pays the teachers and employees, while the Marist Brothers administer them. The schools of  Luanda and Kuito belong to the Brothers, while the one in N’Dalatando belongs to the local diocese. The schooling follows the educational principles of Marist pedagogy and is inspired by the charism of the congregation. At Kuito, in addition to the training college, there is a juniorate or junior seminary where 34 boys are preparing for religious life.

Angola forms part of the Province of Southern Africa, and also has some Brasilian Brothers.
