Grounded in this faith-filled view, the Marianist tradition invites a prudent openness to social and cultural change in the world, following the maxim of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade; “For new times, new methods.”
We encourage the creative imagination in learning and all human endeavors. Using the grace of our faith as we face new times benefits all those who work in Marianist education. In being faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Word Incarnate, we live with and for the people of our time and share with them their joys and hopes, their anxieties and sufferings.
