The Marist Brothers Province of Australia will today launch its new vocations website, coinciding with National Vocations Awareness Week.
The website, www.maristvocations.com.au, provides 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.
In a statement launching the website, the Marist Brothers said, “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.
“Providing healthy and substantive processes of discernment is also an important part of supporting all people continue to deepen their relationship with God, and to give full expression to their vocation as a child and co-heir of God.”
The website provides introductory information about the Marist Brothers in Australia, including insights into the life and spirituality of the brothers, a brief history of the order’s founder, St Marcellin Champagnat, and information on discernment and formation stages.
It also includes three distinctive film series that further explore the life of a modern-day Marist Brother.
