Marist Bicentenary Commemorative Mass

Marist Bicentenary Commemorative Mass

We invite our College Community to join us in celebrating our Marist Bicentenary at a Commemorative Mass at St Joseph’s Subiaco on Monday 2 January 2017.

On 2 January 1817, Marcellin Champagnat welcomed two young men into a house which he had rented in the town of La Valla where he was assistant pastor. Their names were Jean-Baptiste Audras and Jean-Marie Granjon. They became the first Marist Brothers, and the date became known as the Foundation Day.

Later that year, these two Brothers began to teach the young people of La Valla, thus beginning the first Marist school.

This event is being celebrated nationally in the 80 countries where the Marist Community is present today. We look forward to celebrating the past and asking God’s blessing on the future as we begin the third century of Marist life and mission.

St Joseph’s Subiaco is the site of the first Marist school in Perth, thus we felt it appropriate to hold this special celebration at this significant site.

Mass will commence at 10.00am and Morning Tea will follow.
