Founded in 2000 by the Society of Mary, Logos works to the Marist principles of hope, reconciliation compassion, mercy, respect for others, commitment to the poor and those who find themselves on the margins of our society. Logos, from the Greek, means ‘The Word’ – a word for Jesus. By using this as its title, the Logos project has made a commitment to living Gospel values and making them real in today’s world.

The Marist Sisters of Aotearoa-New Zealand have been involved with this group since its beginning, responding to the various requests for assistance as spiritual guides, providing administrative assistance, working with the team in a formative and educative way, providing resources as requested and also financial assistance. The community at Mt Albert makes its chapel available for the sacramental programme for Marist College which is run by the Logos team. They have also given valuable input to our annual assembly in 2010. At present Sr Juliana gives weekly administrative assistance in a range of tasks. Recently, Sr Lorraine gave input on the liturgical year as a way of assisting the core team.
