In October 2011 I wrote: 'In 2013 there will be one Marist Brothers' Province in Australia. Currently there are two - one called the Sydney Province and the other the Melbourne Province. The establishment of this new Province will allow a national perspective to be developed and a greater range of resources shared. Marist Brothers, Lay Marists, Marist Leaders, Staff in Marist Schools and other Marist Ministries, as well as numerous colleagues, friends and students, participate in this national Marist community. As Marists, we seek to walk with young people as they learn, as they search for their true identity and begin to lead our world into the future. Our Marist charism invites these young people to respond to the God in their lives, especially as members of our Catholic Church and in harmony with their own families and local communities.' Now we are one Province of Australia and we are blessed to be so.
