Catholic Education in the tradition of St Marcellin Champagnat

Living Champagnat's Vision

The Central Desert is a far cry from the rambling hills of France where Champagnat began his project. A desert experience where one can touch into one’s own heart I am sure was not envisaged in his visioning!
Exploring how the desert nourishes the soul as it has many generations before us is the journey to the heart, a desert experience, with its stark beauty, harsh environs, allure and mystique speaks of God’s spirit alive and well! Contemplating on our ‘desert’ experience, the Marist world in context of the desert culture and history, will call participants to enter into this journey to the Heart and learn how to integrate this experience into their local ministry!
Limited places are still available in this Programme.
