Challenging youth to sail away from mediocrity REMAR is a Catholic Marist Youth Movement that was started in Colombia, South America in 1976 by Brother Nestor Quentor.
What began as a simple retreat day followed up by weekly meetings, has developed into an international movement.
REMAR has been operating in Australia and New Zealand since 1990 and is currently based in 14 catholic colleges in Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia.
The REMAR Movement is a program for both school students and young adults. It sets sail at the end of Year 9, in small groups that gather for meetings, social outings, leadership training camps, reflection days and meet to discuss issues, join in group games and prayer.
REMAR is a response to the needs of young people today helping them form their identity. It encourages youth to find a relevant expression of their faith and to live this in their daily lives. REMAR promotes awareness of social justice issues, challenges youth to act on these problems and to support each other in the community.
REMAR aims to develop leaders in the Church who can take initiative, discover their full potential for the betterment of society, and develop in their relationship with God and one another.
