The Society of Mary is composed of priests and brothers in seven provinces and four missionary districts around the world. In the United States, the Marists reach from East Coast to West Coast, and from our borders with Canada and Mexico.
We reach out to all people — especially those who feel alienated. We encourage the Church to unify in its diversity and to be transformed by the spirit of Mary. Our apostolic work takes us to parishes, schools and college campuses, prisons, hospitals, and missions in this country and overseas.
All Marists are missionary in character, desiring to serve God and bear the love of God for others.

Marists Essential to Development in Northeast Dioceses
Under the direction of founder, Fr. Jean-Claude Colin, S.M., the Marists exercised their ministry at forming and sending missionary bands throughout France to help rebuild its shattered and broken Church.
By the 1880s, so many Marists had arrived in the United States that Pope Leo XIII gave the Society permission to establish an American Province in 1889.
Lack of quick and sure communication in a mountainous country, as well as the scattered and isolated condition of Catholics in these sections gave rise to most of the problems and difficulties encountered by the pioneer priests in the early days.
Two diocesan priests, Fathers Gormely and DeLoan, were appointed successively to take care of all the Catholics who were sprinkled over a rough and then roadless territory of about 4,000 square miles.
"Our vocation is to go
from place to place."
