New Course Commencing in 2018

Leadership from a Marian Perspective

As Marists, Mary has a special place in our hearts. We continue to learn more about her and to understand the significance of her role in the life of Jesus. Across the centuries numerous devotions to Mary have emerged. Today, there is an increasing focus on the contemplative Mary and on Mary as archetype.

Our Marist Tertiary Team is working enthusiastically on a new Unit for those who would like to study Mary at greater depth. During these four days we will seek to unearth answers to questions like ‘What has been the influence of Vatican II on our understanding of Mary’ and ‘What are the implications of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si on our Marist work?

Our new Course is titled ‘Leadership from a Marian Perspective’. It will be taught at our Marist Centre Melbourne across two weekends: May 5-6, 2018 and May 26-27, 2018. Accreditation for this Unit with Australian Catholic University at the Masters level (AQF Level 9) has been obtained.
