Marian House in named for Mary Mother of God.
Mary the Mother of God, Mother of the Church
Mary of Nazareth, as shown in the gospels, inspires us to listen and respond to God’s call with whole-hearted generosity and courage. Mary is presented as the true, first disciple who does the will of God. Her “yes” to God’s request leads to Jesus’ presence among us. In Mary, Luke the evangelist emphasises God’s preference for the poor and the little ones, Luke 1:39-56 The Magnificat, the Prayer of the Poor.

Mary you are for us a model of faithful discipleship. We
pray that our lives may be lived as generously as yours in
the service of God. As you said “yes” to God , you said
“My soul glorifies the Lord.” May we give glory in our words and in our actions.
“Strongest of heart and mind”
This motto demonstrated the innate qualities of Mary’s strength to say “Yes” when asked to be the mother of Jesus and her never ending love and faith in God
