100 years of Marist Education in Hamilton

On Sunday June 5, Marist people gathered at St John’s College to celebrate the 100 years of Marist presence in Hamilton. Mons. Frank (former Brother) and Fr. Chris concelebrated Mass, with Mons. Frank giving a homily in which he offered fulsome praise of the contribution that the Brothers had made to the Church in the city over those 100 years.

The Mass was followed by a lunch prepared by the staff and students of the Cooking Department of the College.

Shane Tong, the Principal, spoke about the College of today and how it was following the Marist tradition. Br Doug offered his thoughts on the situation of the Brothers in New Zealand today, highlighting the move into a new Province in December and the focus on Champagnat Marists to continue the work begun by the Brothers of yesteryear. Mons Frank then shared some events involving Brothers during his time as a student at the College.
