OUR LATEST APPEAL
Our elderly and disabled Marist Brothers often tell me that more than anything, they don’t want to become a burden to their younger Brothers. In particular, they don’t want to become a distraction that negatively impacts the work that we do, work they’ve dedicated their lives to.
Even in their twilight years, they remain dedicated to teaching young people and fostering their true human and spiritual formation, just as the founder of The Marist Brothers, St. Marcellin Champagnat did over 200 years ago.
Many of our Brothers fear becoming burdens to our religious community. We certainly don’t consider them burdens. Rather, they’re each a continuing blessing.
