Province of Australia launch its new Marist Vocations website

On August 4, as part of marking National Vocations Awareness Week, the Marist Brothers Province of Australia  launched its new Vocations website, located at  http://www.maristvocations.com.au/. This new website is dedicated to providing material and resources about the life and mission of the Marist Brothers in a contemporary context, as well as materials that can assist a person discerning life as a Marist Brother.

The website is part of the Marist Brothers’ faithfulness to providing resources and avenues for young people to continue to explore the possibility of a formal religious commitment in the Catholic Church. Promoting and advocating diverse expressions of living one’s vocation and discipleship to Jesus Christ, including life as a religious brother, remains an important priority of the Marist Brothers.

The website provides introductory information about the Marist Brothers in Australia, including insights into the life and spirituality of the Marist Brothers, a brief history of our Founder, St Marcellin Champagnat, and information on our discernment and formation stages.

The website also presents resources for education and formation settings, including three distinctive film series. The first series, “Being Marist” contain three films, titled, “Meaning & Mission,” “Community & Relationships,” and “Faith & Spirituality,” all of which focus on the contextual understanding of the key elements of Marist life in Australia. The second, “Characteristics of Marist Life,” provide reflective resources on the nature of mission, spirituality, and community for the modern-day Marist Brother. The third series “Talking Heads” involves the Marist Brothers in Australia responding to interesting, provocative, and challenging questions about the life of a Marist Brother in Australia today.

Finally, information about the ministries that Marist Brothers founded, and continue to be associated with through the Marist Association of St Marcellin Champagnat, are also accessible on the new website.  

The website is also viewable in a mobile-friendly mode, making it easier and clearer to access information on smartphones and tablets. For more information visit the social networks: Instagram (@fmsbrothers: ‘Marist Brothers Life Aus’) and Facebook (@MaristVocations: ‘Marist Brothers Life’).
