How to best serve others



XII Marist Forum - Mittagong

16/06/2010: Australia

As we remembered the brave young Australians who answered the call to serve their country almost a century ago in Gallipoli, 21 young Marist students gathered at Le Rosey, Mittagong to explore their vocation in how to best serve others in the twenty first century.

The schools represented this weekend were: St Gregorys College, Campbelltown; Marist College, Canberra; Cerdon College, Merrylands; St Patricks Marist College, Dundas; Marist College, Eastwood; St Francis Xaviers College, Hamilton; St Josephs College, Hunters Hill; Marist College, North Sydney; Parramatta Marist High, Westmead; Marist Sisters, Woolwich.

The weekend was highly praised in the students feedback and the success of this forum is due to the coordination by Julie Sligar and the generous time gifted by Young Marists members: Darren Fitzpatrick & Laurie Lawira. We were fortunate to have inspiring speakers who volunteered their times to share their own vocational stories: Michael & Sarah Gleeson, Fr Paul Ghanem ofm and Br Anthony Robertson fms.

The depth of sharing and the strong rapport established amongst the young people reflect very much how these Marist schools are nurturing strong and gentle hearts who value relationship and a greater sense of other. Marist Vocation is alive and well amongst these senior students.
