Jean-Claude Colin

Marist founder

Jean-Claude Colin SM was the founder of the Marist Fathers – priests and brothers of the Society of Mary.

Born at the close of the 18th century in revolution-torn France, Jean-Claude was convinced that the Blessed Virgin wanted a group of men and women to do her work in the world at a time of turmoil and challenge.

With this inspiration he forged the way for a new family of consecrated religious and of laity in the Church - the Marist family.

This website has braod range of information about the Marists and their traditions.
