WHERE ARE WE

First Marist Community in England (1858)

The first foundation of the Marist Sisters outside France began in Spitalfields, a socially and spiritually deprived area in the East End of London, in 1858.  Five Sisters formed the pioneer community and although their main work was teaching, faithful to the founding charism, they soon involved themselves “where the needs were greatest”. This involved parish visiting, running soup kitchens and work with orphaned children.

The history of the founding community in England will be uploaded in July 2024.
