In Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia

19/07/2004: Australia

Alice Springs is located in the heart of Australia. Surrounded by the red sands of an immense desert and awe-inspiring views, it’s a point of departure for visits to outstanding tourist destinations, including Ayers Rock – Uluru in the Aboriginal language. In this town of 30,000, there is a Marist community that runs a school with branches for different academic levels in different parts of the city.

Every month the brothers, with a few teachers and parents, hold a community meeting to share their mission. These meetings feature prayer, reflection, dialogue, and a meal together.

The “Marist Laity Australia” association takes in all groups envisioned in the original dream of the Society of Mary. In addition to the Marist Brothers, founded by Saint Marcellin Champagnat, members of the Society of Mary’s Fathers, Sisters, and Missionary Sisters also attend. Quite simply, their aims are to form, inform, and transform. Membership is open to people from all walks of life. The Marist dream continues to excite interest in the hearts of many and provides a beacon for individuals and groups who want to travel the road to human and spiritual development.
