Answer the Call
These are exciting times for the Marianist Province of Meribah. Our schools are thriving, there are so many active parents and alumni supporting our mission, and we have three new Marianists in formation – we are indeed very blessed.
In the Gospel story of Martha and Mary we are told that Martha was anxious and worried about many things…I think anyone discerning a religious vocation can probably relate! Our challenge, and it is a great challenge, is to find solace with Jesus and, like Mary, know that everything will work out in God’s own time, as tough as relinquishing that trust might be some days! I encourage you to pray with the Bible, through it I am sure you can relate to many of our forefathers in faith. Likewise, the lives of the saints offer further stories of people, like us, who have struggled with a vocation in their own lives – and prevailed!
