Marianist vocation

What is a brother?

In today’s world, a religious vocation is an unusual path. Check out this video to learn some basics.

Are you called to become a Marianist?

This is a great question to be asking yourself. The Marianists – members of the Society of Mary – are a joyful, prayerful community of men. We represent a wide range of ages and cultural backgrounds. We share a devotion to the Blessed Mother and a commitment to service.

The Marianists are:

  • Men of faith: We are moved by the Holy Spirit to follow Jesus.
  • Dedicated to Mary: She is our model of discipleship. We are inspired by her example to bring Christ to the world.
  • Men of community: We believe that living simply, praying daily and supporting each other as a community enriches our faith and strengthens our ability to grow and meet challenges.
  • A discipleship of equals: Brothers and priests serve side by side and serve each other. Priesthood is seen as a ministry, not a step up the ladder.
  • Leaders in mission: Our mission is to bring Christ to the world and to work for the coming of his kingdom.

Are you called to become a Marianist? We look forward to helping you find out.
