When:  Every July                                                                                  Photo from 2006
Where: Marist College Poughkeepsie, NY   

The weekends were instituted in 1995 by a few Marist Brothers and some ex-brothers along with
their wives and a few friends. We began meeting once a year in order to grow and develop in our
Marist spirituality, to renew old friendships, and to perhaps form new friendships.
Talks have been presented by a variety of persons, both religious (including members of all four
Marist Congregations) and lay, and there is always lively discussion.  
Over the years the weekends have been attended by a diverse group, and beginning in 2008, we
especially invite past participants in the Brothers’ “Sharing Our Call” program to attend.
The theme of the 2007 meeting was: “Reflecting on Our Prayer Journey,” while the 2008 theme is
centered on the spirituality of St. Marcellin Champagnat.  

Sharing Our Call alumni may contact Br. Hank Hammer for further information:

Details for 2008 will be published in “Marists All” as they develop.
