The Marist Sisters were founded during the Post Revolution France when society was living in a time of great upheaval.

The Marist Sisters recognise Jeanne-Marie Chavoin (Mother Saint Joseph) as their Foundress and Jean-Claude Colin as their Founder.

Marist Sisters called think, judge, feel and act as Mary in today’s world. “Simply fitting in wherever we can be of service, seeking in return neither esteem nor acknowledgement…” (Constitutions 6).

To be a Marist Sister is ‘to be called by a gracious choice’ to follow Christ, by living the Gospel as Mary did, in a Congregation which bears her name (Constitutions 2)
