Marianists - embracing Mary & community

The Marianist way: holy women and men, lay and Religious, living and praying in communities, convinced that through Mary, Christ can be born into each age through our holi­ness and our Gospel service. 

To embrace Marianist community, as a lay or Religious member, is to open oneself or one’s family to the adventure of real Gospel liv­ing. We allow Mary to change how we pray and how we relate to each other. Perhaps most importantly, through our prayer and com­munity, we allow Mary to help us see with new eyes the critical, unmet human needs around us and to give us the courage to re­spond. Consequently, just like our wonderful Marianist ancestors, in small and incremental ways, we will transform the world for Christ in our families, on our blocks, and in our neighborhoods.
