In 1817 Marcellin Champagnat, aged 26 and newly ordained as a priest took up residence in France, where he was to begin his life’s work. Guided by a profound faith and a spirit of service, he was able to bring about spiritual renewal through education. By the time Father Champagnat died in 1840, he had built up a network of 40 schools. In 1889, the Marist Brothers established the first boys’ school in the mining town of Johannesburg in Koch Street. Much of the early success of the Marist Brothers was based on Champagnat’s own example, as well as from the simple philosophy of service in humility and simplicity.
