The Marianist Province of the United States comprises 265 professed brothers and priests serving in the United States. The Province also includes communities and ministries in India, Ireland and Mexico. In the United States, they sponsor three universities: University of Dayton in Ohio, St. Mary’s University in San Antonio and Chaminade University of Honolulu, as well as 19 secondary/middle schools, six parishes and several retreat centers. The order has been present in the United States since 1849 when the Marianists came to Cincinnati. Blessed William Jospeh Chaminade founded the Society of Mary in 1817.
