Could Marianist life be for you?
Marianist brothers and priests are distinguished by certain charisms, or gifts, given by God for the benefit of the Christian community. These charisms guide all Marianist ministries and programs:
People of Faith: Moved by the Holy Spirit, Marianists follow Jesus after the example of Mary in their service to others.
Dedicated to Mary: Inspired by the example of Mary to bring forth Christ for others.
People of Community: Marianists believe that living simply, praying daily, and supporting faithfully each other in community enriches their faith and strengthens their ability to meet challenges, especially those of ignorance, affluence, poverty and injustice.
Shared Discipleship: Brothers and priests serve each other; no one is above the other.
Leaders in mission. The Marianist mission is to bring Christ to the world and to work for the coming of His kingdom.
