"It was good to re-connect with the Marist world. I've always felt "Marist", but this helped re-set and re-charge me."

"Marist has been part of my life since I was a student. After this experience of Discovering Our Call as an adult, I feel I can be more confident in living out the mission to make Jesus known and loved knowing there are many others, in many places (besides the schools), who are doing just that."
