Bon Voyage

Today we said bon voyage to our Superior General and his council who have spent the last two weeks with our Province.

The General Administration visited with many student groups, faculty, and lay collaborators at Chaminade High School, Kellenberg Memorial High School, and St. Martin de Porres Marianist School. 

The members of the General Administration celebrated Mass with our Communities, attended an educational symposium for the faculties and staffs of all three Marianist schools on Long Island, and presided at Evening Prayer for the Marianist World Day of Prayer. Our General Council is composed of four members: Very Rev. Manuel Cortes, Superior General; Very Rev. Andre Fetis, Assistant for Religious Life; Bro. Maximin Magnon, Assistant for Education; and Bro. Michael McAward , Assistant for Temporalities. 

Their visit deepened our connection with our Marianist Brothers and Sisters worldwide and reminded us of our debt of gratitude to our Founder, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade. 

As he wrote, "As Mary, by her faith, conceived Jesus Christ in the natural order, we too can conceive Him very truly in the spiritual order, by our faith."
