Marist School academic team players senior captain Ben Wise, and freshmen Austin Frank, Ryan MacGinnitie, and Andrew Washington will play against North Gwinnett this Saturday, March 24 at 12:30 p.m. on WSB Channel 2's High Q.
Marist School has been ranked one of Atlanta’s best places to work by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) in their 2018 Top Workplaces study. Only 150 workplaces (25 large, 50 midsize, 75 small) are included on the list, which is based solely on employee feedback gathered through third-party surveys administered by the AJC’s research partner Energage, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. More than 2,300 companies were nominated or asked to participate in 2018, and more than 55,000 employees completed surveys.
Marist School is spending the Lenten season of preparation for Easter continuing its focus on the plight of migrants and refugees as encouraged by Pope Francis.* This past fall, Marist responded to the Pope’s call by inviting Catholic Charities of Atlanta to set up a model of a refugee camp for students to experience. Since then, a number of these students have been working to learn more about refugees and migrants, including taking a field trip on February 6 to the Friends of Refugees organization in Clarkston, Ga.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 14, which, of course, is also Valentine's Day. Easter Sunday is on April 1, which is popularly known as April Fool's Day. Both days are perhaps trivial reminders of the way the Christian perspective is often different from popular culture. The issue of migration is a more poignant reminder for Christians to promote compassion and justice in a world that sometimes neglects both.
