150 Years of Marist Living

Sr Margaret & Her Brother Fr Neil

On Sunday 11th July a Marist celebration in Australia and one in New Zealand celebrated 150 years of Marist Commitment for three Marist Sisters. In New Zealand Sr. Margaret Vaney’s Golden Jubilee was celebrated with a joyful Mass in the Mt Albert Chapel celebrated by her brother, Fr. Neil Vaney SM. This was followed by a meal together during which there were speeches acknowledging Margaret’s life and ministry, and stories from communities of which she had been a part.
