15 August: Patronal Feast of the Institute

The Church celebrates the feast of the Assumption of Mary on 15 August. This day is also the patronal feast of the Institute. The Constitutions of the Marist Brothers remind us as follows:

Like Father Champagnat, we go to Mary as a child to its mother. By prayer, and by studying what the Church is saying about Mary, we seek to deepen our relationship with her. Her great feast days, especially the Assumption, which is the patronal feast of the Institute, are special times for intensifying our devotion to this Good Mother (Const. 74).

Our Superior General, Brother Ernesto Sánchez, invites us to walk with Mary:

“Marists of Champagnat, we walk hand in hand with Mary in times of uncertainty. From her we learn to live with a heart that listens, reads the signs of the times and acts from the eyes of God”.
