Community Life

seminarymealsLiving in a group is key to being a Marist.

It’s one of our rules.

Every Marist belongs to a team at home, at work and in prayer. This brings a certain balance and humour to his life.

The others support him and he supports them.

This lifestyle requires generosity. It means putting the Gospel into practice on a daily basis. Sometimes it is difficult, but it is well worth the effort.

Meals are social times. We also share the cleaning and maintenance of our house.

In chapel every day, we pray and sing together. We pool our finances – those we earn and our expenses.

We enjoy hospitality and celebrate often.

Balance in community life, also means that each Marist has his own space – his own room, personal time, his own friends and interests as well.
