A new book has been published to commemorate the Fourvière Year titled ‘Beyond Fourvière… Reflections from Young Marists.' 

The book includes an introduction from members of the Marist family – Father Anthony Corcoran sm, Sister Jane Frances O’Carroll sm, Sister Vivienne Goldstein sm, Sister Margaret Ryan smsm and Brother Eugène Kabanguka fms. 

The book is a series of letters from 18 young members directed to the founders of the four branches of the Society of Mary – Marcellin Champagnat, Jeanne-Marie Chavoin, Jean-Claude Colin and the pioneers of the Missionary Sisters.

It offers a reflection on the importance of the Fourvière event, the way the pledge coincides with their dreams, their experiences in fulfilling their dreams as well as their deepest desires now as Marists.

In a combined letter to Marists in Sept. 2014 of the Marist Family Congregation leaders, the four superiors general announced the desire to publish “a collection of contributions from the young members of our Marist family on their hopes and dreams for the future, inspired by the young men of Fourvière.”
