Bottom: Like the sun that gently touches the face of every flower, God touches our lives with His loving care. Back of the card: The Marianist Family is comprised of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist Sisters), the Society of Mary (Marianist brothers and priests) and Lay Marianists. Marianists are especially dedicated to uplifting people through education but also serve in other types of ministries worldwide. The Marianists were founded nearly 200 years ago in France at the end of the French Reveloution by Blessed William Joseph Chaminade. He saw in Mary, the Mother of Christ, a model for discipleship that can show us how to welcome the Spirit of God into our own lives. Supporters of the Marianist Mission's ministry make possible our foreign and domestic ministries, enable the training of Marianist novices and seminarians, and provide care for our elderly and infirm Marianists.
