Dayton, Ohio- The Chaminade Julienne community has been celebrating the 200 year anniversary of the Marianists over the past year but Monday October 2 is the actual anniversary of the founding of the Society of Mary (the brothers and priests).

“Around the world Marianist schools and institutions will be praying at 2 as a way of uniting and thanking God for the past 200 years,” said Dr. Dillon, CJ religion teacher who is beyond excited to celebrate the Bicentennial. “At CJ we will have a prayer service and other activities in the CJ stadium.  As part of the prayers service every sodality in every Religion class created a prayer flag to be joined together.”

The sodalities’ prayer flags are borrowed from Tibetan tradition that believes in the idea that the flags will carry messages of good will through the wind.

“Our faith is only made richer when we celebrate and value the history and diversity of our members.  The 200th celebration of the Society of Mary’s Foundation is a beautiful reminder of the many people who have worked to keep the Charism alive and have continued the mission of making Christ known in the world, no matter the time or place.” Mrs. Badinghaus explained when asked about the celebration.

The afternoon assembly will contain games based on the founders of CJ (Father Chaminade and St. Julie Billiart) that will bring the community together in celebration.

We are guided each day by the gift of both the Marianist and Notre Dame Charisms, and it is important to stop sometimes to recognize the role all who have been inspired by Mary’s call to bring her son into the world – and to remember that each of us is called to be animators of that charism as members of the Chaminade Julienne community.
