Direct your children
"Direct your children to the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it."
Today we have an inspirational video by Sharefaith that explains how a father can give a godly example to his children and can leave godly legacy. As Marianists we are always trying to give godly example for those young men and women whom we serve in our schools.
We see a very close connection between service of the Word of God and a Catholic educational program whose chief aim is to provide a religious environment for the young. Here in an educational environment, we are corporately committed to effectively communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all Christians.
From the very beginning stages of our Province we have embraced education in the Catholic school as our primary apostolate. This commitment has been made in response to the teaching of the Popes and of the Church regarding the value and effectiveness of Catholic education.
From its earliest days, the Society of Mary has effectively run schools in the service of the Church. Drawing upon the tradition of experience and success in running Marianist schools, our Province understands the professional and evangelical opportunities of the school to be great gifts and challenges in the service of the Church.
