Gathered around the same table

A new CD with Marist songs

Over the past several months brothers from Arlon and Habay have worked on a new Marist song with singer-songwriter Theo Mertens. From this collaboration a new CD developed which has been given the title, “AUTOUR DE LA MÊME TABLE” – gathered around the same table.A new CD with Marist songs

With the prospect of the forthcoming bicentenary in 2017 of the Institute of the Marist Brothers, the idea emerged to make a musical rendition of the life, spirituality and mission shared by brothers and lay people all over the world.

The song, “Gathered around the same table”, has been inspired by the document of the same name. In this document lay Marists describe what gives their life meaning as they follow in the footsteps of Saint Marcellin Champagnat.

This was soon followed by the idea of creating a compilation CD. This CD contains all the Marist songs which have been composed and performed by Theo Mertens, a well-known Belgian artist.

Called to be brothers and sisters, apostles to the youth of our time, we have been able to work together on this project. We have done this in communion with each other, and in this way we have given witness to the Marial face of the Church.

May these songs inspire and encourage you on your way.


The CD contains 13 songs and 7 orchestral versions, and costs €12 (+ shipping costs). Also available is an accompanying booklet (size A4), either in printed form (price: €3 + shipping costs) or as a free download (PDF) under “Publications” on this website.

Orders can be placed with the “Fraternité Champagnat” in Habay: contact@lebua.be
