2017-06-01 GENERAL HOUSE


For its official celebration of the Institute’s Bicentenary on June 6, the general administration is proposing using the hashtag #MillionMarists on social networks. 

The hashtag was used throughout the Institute on January 2, the official date of the Institute’s 200-year anniversary, with the aim of reaching one million messages worldwide.

By using the hashtag, Marists worldwide will show that Saint Marcellin Champagnat’s dream, which began with two youths in the small house of La Valla in France, now includes a large family of Brothers and laity.

On June 6, St Marcellin’s feast, the general administration will celebrate the Bicentenary with Marists from around the world in Rome.

The general administration would like to appeal to the Institute’s administrative units and their communication teams, to help spread this hashtag on social media for this event.


International communities for a new beginning...
