Marist Young Adult Program
 October 2012

Hello Marist Young Adults!



On October 28th, our Marist family commemorated Marcellin Champagnat's momentous meeting with a dying young boy.  Reading the signs of the times, Marcellin knew that he needed to establish a congregation of teaching brothers to combat the religious ignorance of his time.  Almost two hundred years later our mission remains the same, to make Jesus Christ known and loved, but our methods have changed.  To help increase our evangelization efforts, the Marist Young Adult Program has launched a mobile app. to keep people connected by sharing information and prayer resources.  If you have not done so already, we invite you visit our website, www.MaristYoungAdult.com, to download the app.  If you have any comments or suggestions about the app., please feel free to contact me at Matt@MaristYoungAdult.com.

Chair, Marist Young Adult Advisory Committee
