The Popes prayer intention for May
That Laity may fulfill their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today.

"Welcome Holy Spirit" - with lyrics


Please keep praying, especially as the Select Committee considers submissions. The New Zealand Medical Association states the existing legal situation: "Ethical assisted dying is:

death with dignity and comfort
the right of patients to decline treatment
the right to request pain relief even it may hasten the death of a patient
the right of access to appropriate palliative care."

What is opposed is assisted dying entailing the deliberate ending of a patients life or assisting their suicide masquerading as medical care. Keep informed and share this information as you pray.

Or those who want to consecrate a new born to the care of Our Mother Mary.

Father Jean Claude Colin, Founder; Pray for Us.
Fr Colin's spiritual and practical legacy was immense.

"Keep well in mind that you must direct your house by prayer. That is very important. Everything by prayer...When something new comes along, something to be said or done, pray to the blessed Virgin." FS.39:19,20,

Here is a YouTube video of excerpts of final mass in Rome for the end of the Colin Year.

We ask Fr Colin to pray that religious and Lay men and women will again catch the vision to be instruments of Gods mercy in Mary's name. May we work to build a Marian church of mercy for the greater glory of God and the honour of his mother and we pray for the full flowering of Fr Colin's vision for Laity. Jean Claude Colin website
A site has been created to give information about Fr Colin, provide weekly extracts of his words for reflection and promote his Cause.

Your Invitation to Explore

To be Marist is to want to encounter Jesus, to love, serve and follow him in Marys way and to share his love with others. We encourage the spiritual growth of families, lay groups and individuals wishing to grow in their Christian journey. Mary wants to gather everyone into Gods family and all are welcome.

Today is a time of great change

The conditions that apply to doing Mary's work are not conditions set by Marist's but by Mary herself. It is work done on her terms.
