In celebration of their 125th Anniversary in the United States, several Marist Brothers gathered at St. Jean Baptist Church in New York City in October 2011. Although their first foundation in the US was in Lewiston, Maine, St. Jean's Church was chosen because it is the parish church across the street from their first school in NY, St. Ann's Academy, founded in 1892.
Standing: Brothers Patrick Hogan, Peter Guadalupe, Rene Roy, Robert Clark, Michael Flanigan and Francis Kelly
Kneeling: Brothers Roy George and Albert Rivera
