In Sep 2012, Superior-General, Fr John Hannan SM, addressing members of the Society of Mary across the world, announced a 'Colin Year', 2013-2014, beginning and ending on Nov 15, the anniversary of Jean-Claude Colin's death in 1875 at La Neylière, France.
During the Colin Year Marists reflected on the words of their Founder, using weekly quotations from 'A Founder Speaks'.
These quotations, now in seven languages, are retained on this web site as an an easily-accessible resource for those who would continue to draw encouragement 'From the Lips of the Founder'. Monthly sets of four quotations are in single-page large-print or folded formats.
A weekly reflection leaflet and companion folder is also available from the Colin Year.
