Fourvière bicentenary planning

Preparations are under way for a combined Marist celebration of the bicentenary of the Fourvière pledge in 1816, the Fourvière Bicentenary Committee holding its second meeting in Rome.

The committee reports:  "Preparations are proceeding well — the venue for Jul 23, 2016, the Basilica in Lyons has been booked, and a number of publications and activities have been planned to assist local communities in marking the year."

Pictured below meeting at the Marist Fathers' General House on Jun 12 are committee members (from left) Sr Jane Frances O'Carroll SM, Br Eugène Kabanguka FMS, Sr Margaret Ryan SMSM and Fr Tony Corcoran SM.

There will soon be a dedicated page for Fourvière under the 'Marist Way' tab of this web site. The current series of 'photo of the week' features Fourvière.
