All to Jesus through Mary, all to Mary for Jesus

The story of our spirituality is one of passion and compassion, passion for God and compassion for people.

Marcellin Champagnat was responding with dedication and in effective practical ways to the needs that he saw around him. But his response to the needs of his time was also formed by the Project shared by the first Marists who dreamed of a renewed way of being Church, to which they pledged themselves at Fourvi├Ęre.

The Marist spirituality that originated with Marcellin and the founding community has been enriched by the successive generations of ChampagnatÔÇÖs followers.
