Marist sisters ausOn December 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the inaugural day of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Marist Sisters all over the world marked a new period in their history as they became one congregation made up of 13 units. Australian sisters celebrated this new beginning with a ceremony for the Design for Life for the Unit of Australia.

The congregation's April 2014 General Chapter in Rome did not decide on governance structures, but has opened the way for each current Sector to reflect on its situation and its needs. From this fresh starting point, each group is invited to shape its future governance model according to its own reality. The vital issue is the life of the Unit, the mission of the Unit, its desire to promote and enhance life.

Read the full report from the website of the Marist Sisters in Asia Pacific.

Read "Embracing New Life in Australia" wherein Marist Sisters in Australia celebrated this new beginning in the congregation's history.
