Marist Sisters' College, Woolwich NSW

This stunning life-sized bronze sculpture of Jeanne-Marie Chavoin embodies our Marist Tradition, representing the profound privilege of passing knowledge, values, traditions, and stories from one generation to the next.

Jeanne-Marie Chavoin, the French Foundress of the Marist Sisters, exemplified the Marist Sisters' commitment to the education of young women. She is depicted here with an open book in her hands, fully engaged in reading to her students. This generous act of dedication signifies the daily opportunities that learning brings to Marist students, opening the gateway to a world of future possibilities, each thriving on meaningful relationships. The gift of reading symbolises the transformative power of education and its spiritual values and traditions, which form the foundation of the Marist Sisters' philosophy, Marist Women of Action.

The senior student, exploring the map, seeks guidance and wise discernment from Jeanne-Marie. The dynamic connection between them is evident, characterized by their shared pursuit of knowledge and the confident arm of Jeanne-Marie. Similarly, the senior student, with her arm resting reassuringly on her sister's shoulder, captures a sense of genuine affection and belonging, while the younger sister responds with a look of admiration and trust. The three women are gathered around our Marist Compass, symbolizing courage, compassion, and gifts.

The Jeanne-Marie Chavoin (JMC) sculpture is strategically positioned on Futuna Terrace, allowing students the daily opportunity to make a passing "touch" or acknowledge Jeanne-Marie in reflection and prayer. Within the college, Jeanne-Marie stands as a visual reminder of the Marist Sisters' vision for the education and empowerment of young women. Her welcoming presence invites students and staff to unite and gather regularly, inspiring them to make individual and collective contributions to the college and wider community, thereby developing their unique Marist 'compass for life'.

The sculpture was blessed by Fr Tony Corcoran sm on 14 June 2024.
