Champagnat in the Pacific

Two staff members visited the far north to take part in the annual Champagnat in the Pacific Conference.

It was a special privilege for Ms Pope and myself to attend a four day Marist retreat in Long Bay on Auckland’s North Shore this week. 

Champagnat in the Pacific allowed us to meet with colleagues from our extended Marist schools whanau from around New Zealand, while developing our understanding of Marcellin Champagnat’s vision as an education leader. 

An important aspect of the Marist charism is looking to the future, so we serve the needs “of the time”. We are excited to work with our students and staff to develop our dual Marist and Mercy charisms for our school in the 21st Century. Blessings to all.
