"Service doesn’t end when you graduate, Marists change the world through serving the most vulnerable." Servo Fidem

Thank you to all those who nominated for the Br Francois Service Medal.
Entries are now closed. 

The College will announce the recipient later this year when there is an opportunity to gather as a wider community. 


The award recognises an Old Boy of the College who has demonstrated that he continues to keep the faith in the service of others.

This medal is named after one of the earliest Brothers, Br Francois (Gabriel Rivat), who joined the Little Brothers of Mary at the time of St Marcellin and became the first Superior-General of the order. 

Br Francois was chosen by St Marcellin and his fellow Brothers to lead this new congregation. He was instrumental in developing a Marist spirituality, one characterised by being Christocentric, affective and mystical. Br Francois was  known to be a joyful person who demonstrated his love and care for others  especially through his service to the Brothers and to the sick.
