Solidarity

 

Marist Solidarity

Solidarity is a commitment to the building of the common good where everyone, regardless of status, is treated with dignity and respect. Our Solidarity programme supports this undertaking through both family and community ministries.

Family Ministry – service undertaken within a boys’ family network – service among immediate family, extended family and neighbours.

Community Ministry - involves activities outside of home and the school in community organisations and institutions, including parishes.

The Marcellin Graduate

They arrive as young boys dependent very much on their parents and their teachers; they depart as adults in the eyes of the law. Young men - citizens of the world. There is an impression that the Marcellin boy is cocooned on the eastern side of Anzac Parade. The challenge for him is that he sees beyond that into the broader world. He is a global citizen. He is called to reach out to others, to let go of any preoccupation with self. His destiny is, as
St Marcellin Champagnat foretold, to be a good Christian and good citizen.
