The Commemoration of the Fourvière Pledge
On the 25th of July, we had the pleasure to welcome brothers and sisters from various marian congregations.
They came to commemorate the Pledge made to Our Lady of Fourviere in Lyon, France by the first Marists missionaries who travelled to Oceania and New Zealand.
We praise God for the Missionary Sisters of the Society of Mary, the Daughters of Our Lady of Compassion, the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, the Marist brothers and the Marist Priests, the Marist Laity and the Missionary Sisters of the Society of Mary.
We give thanks for their presence here in New Zealand and all the work they do for Christ and His Church.
We entrust to the Lord our ongoing efforts to valorize the history of the catholic mission to New Zealand and spread devotion to Our Holy Mother.
