Calendars all over
Copies of the Colin calendar for 2020 are distributed widely across the Marist world. First to receive them are the young men in formation communities, some pictured below.
This year's calendar features the countryside of France familiar to Jean-Claude Colin and is produced in seven languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish).
Each month has a quotation from Fr Colin and reminders about significant Marist anniversaries.
