Lavalla200> Mount Druitt Community



Marist Learning Zone

17/01/2018: Australia

The Lavalla200> community of the Oceania region situated in Mount Druitt, Australia, and whose members are Argelia Hernández Mendoza, Rodrigo Gris Castro, Br Jonnel Sisneros and Br Lawrie McCane, is running a ministry with several activities.

Among them is the Marist Learning Zone, a joint project between the Catholic Education in the Diocese of Parramatta and the Marists.

The MLZ began in 2015 when the Mount Druitt community was first formed, and its members were exploring the needs of young people in the area.

Despite the changes in community personnel and some delays, commitment by both the community and the diocese to the project has remained strong, with a clear need for such services.

For more information on the MLZ, which has now employed staff, http://www.mlz.catholic.edu.au/.

The Lavalla200> International Communities for a New Beginning programme, which began in 2016, has six communities in the peripheries of Cape Town (South Africa), Syracuse (Italy), Moinesti (Romania), Sydney (Australia), Tabatinga (Brazil) and New York (USA). Apart from these six communities, there are six Marist brothers and lay people who are working in Asia: in Cambodia, Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
