Retreat gathers 45 staff from all South African Marist schools

07/08/2017: South Africa

Forty-five staff from the five Marist schools in South Africa gathered from July 20 – 23 in Hartbeespoort for the annual retreat, ‘Sharing our Call.’

It was hosted at the Good Shepherd Retreat Centre by the Marist Brothers Linmeyer, an elementary school of Johannesburg.

Participants came from St Henry’s Marist College in Durban, St Joseph’s Marist College in Cape Town, as well as from three schools in Johannesburg, St David’s Marist Inanda, Marist Brothers Linmeyer and Sacred Heart College.

This year is the Institute’s bicentenary and marks 150 years of Marist education in Africa.

The retreated ended on July 23, the 201st anniversary of when Saint Marcellin Champagnat and the first Marists made a pledge to Mary at the shrine of Fourvière.

Brother Jude Pieterse, provincial councillor of Southern Africa, and Mike Greeff, director of the Marist Schools Council of South Africa, took part in the retreat.
