Marist Brothers Memorial
On the evening of March 27, 2019, a memorial was dedicated on the grounds of St Francis Xavier College. About 200 people attended.
The memorial was built “In Remembrance of all students, both living and deceased, who were victims of sexual abuse at this school, which was Marist Brothers’ High School Hamilton”.
The memorial was conceptualised and developed in a collaborative, consultative process between CAN (the Clergy Abused Network), Marist Brothers Province of Australia and the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
