The Marianist LIFE summer programs are a faith formation experience for high school students and their moderators. Moderators (campus ministers, youth ministers, teachers, adult volunteers, etc.) attend Moderator Days prior to the students arrival to learn about Marianist LIFE and the summer program, in addition to building and modeling communities of faith. The students arrive for a week-long experience of small faith communities, sacraments, prayer, leadership development, retreat, and social justice education.
Marianist LIFE summer programs are held at three different locations during three different weeks every summer. Our summer sites are: Marianist LIFE Central (Bergamo Center in Dayton, Ohio), Marianist LIFE Pacific (CYO Camp & Retreat Center in Occidental, California), and Marianist LIFE South (TECABOCA in Mountain Home, Texas). These weeks are organized and facilitated by Regional Coordinating Teams. Regional Coordinating teams are comprised of various adult and young adult professionals involved in ministry, education, and related fields.
