Join Our Mission

The Join Her Mission campaign ended on June 30, 2019, after having raised nearly 11 million dollars. Over the years, you have been a faithful partner with the Marianists through your generosity to the Marianist Mission. We are so grateful! Your support has enabled us to educate our young brothers, care for our senior members, support our high schools and universities, and partner with the poor around the world. Thank you for joining us. Our mission would be incomplete without you, our faithful Mission partners.

We can only continue the mission entrusted to us by our Founder, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade with you, our partners. We invite you to continue to share in Mary’s mission of making Christ present in our world by forming persons and communities of apostolic faith, committed to education as we minister with youth and in solidarity with the poor.

As Marianists, we seek to embody Mary’s attentiveness to the Lord. Through our works, we seek to continue her mission of discipleship.

Blessed Father Chaminade believed we are all missionaries. There are many ways you can partner in ministry with the Marianists to touch the lives of people in need. Outright and legacy gifts are a thoughtful and generous way to meet your personal financial objectives and enable the Marianists to help those in need now and in the future.

Three Ways to Support the Marianists

Assist a Marianist

Care for elderly brothers and priests

Over the course of their long working careers, Marianist priests and brothers touch the lives of thousands. They have given unselfishly so that others may grow and find God. Today, more than 200 Marianists are age 70 or older. Many require costly healthcare that now consumes nearly half of our total yearly budget.

Now, the brothers and priests ask their faithful friends to assist them in their senior years.

Prepare for the future

Sustain formation of brothers, sponsored ministries, and Marianist Urban Students Program (MUSP) in sponsored schools

The Marianists offer a quality formation program for young men who wish to be Marianist brothers and priests. Members of the Society of Mary – are a joyful, prayerful community of men, sharing a devotion to the Blessed Mother and a commitment to service.

Marianist-sponsored ministries — schools, universities, retreat centers, parishes and missionary activities — animate the Marianist Charism to thousands of lives reached every year. They bring to life the words of Mary to the stewards at the wedding feast at Cana: “Do whatever He tells you.”

Your gift will ensure our lay collaborators carry on the distinctive Marianist culture.

Remain Faithful to the Mission

Partnering with the poor in India and Eastern Africa

Inspired for Mary’s compassionate love, the Marianists work to bring justice into the world by solving problems and relieving suffering caused by cycles of poverty. Millions in India and Eastern Africa are trapped in these treacherous cycles.

With the help of loyal supporters, the Marianists will continue this vital mission of educating the world’s most impoverished so that they may create better lives for themselves and their communities.
