About the Society of Mary

The Society of Mary is an international Catholic religious order of priests and brothers, with about 300 serving in the Province of the United States. Members of the Province also serve in Eastern Africa, India, Ireland and Mexico.

In the United States, the Marianists sponsor three universities – the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio; St. Mary’s University in San Antonio; and Chaminade University of Honolulu – as well as 19 secondary schools, six parishes and four retreat centers.

Blessed William Joseph Chaminade founded the Society of Mary (Marianists) in France in 1817. The congregation has had a presence in the United States since 1849, when the Marianists first arrived in Ohio.
