NE MARIANIST FAMILY COUNCIL GATHERS FOR BI-ANNUAL MEETING
The Northeast Marianist Family Council held its biannual meeting on Oct. 20 at the Marianist Center in Philadelphia. The council welcomed Jim Vogt and Julie Nagasako of the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative who presented a pilot program, “The Marianist Call to Advance Justice.” The program will be made available to Marianist Family members in the near future.
