Saint Marcellin...




The Marist Brothers of the schools is an institute of consecrated life founded in 1817 by St. Marcellin Champagnat (1789-1840) in France Marcellin was ordained a Catholic Priest in 1816. Soon after his ordination, he embarked on realization of his dreams as a seminarian which included organizing a group of Brothers to catechize and teach the poor as well as dispirited youths. On January 2, 1817, the institute called Marist Brothers was founded with just two candidates recruited.

The primary mission of the Marist Brothers is the Christian education of young people for the knowledge of God, culture and self-discovery, while living authentic Christian loves for the benefit of the homes and society at large.

The institute of the Marist Brothers began its mission in Nigeria in 1949 with the invitation of the Brothers by Bishop Whelam of Owerri Archdiocese. The initial mandate of the Marist Brothers in Nigeria was the taking over of the management of the two existing Catholic Schools, namely; Bishop Shannahan College (B.S.C), Orlu, in the present Imo State and College of Immaculate Conception (C.I.C), Enugu.
