Contemplating Mary
in the mysteries of
Nazareth and Pentecost
and her role at the end of time, Marists come to share
her zeal for her Son's mission
in his struggle against evil,
and to respond with promptness to the most urgent needs
of God's people.

Mary Praying
Marist Prayer

Marists learn from Jean-Claude Colin and like him from Mary, how to approach the work of evangelization so that the Gospel may be received in all its power and clarity.

Through prayer Marists will learn to place their gifts unselfishly at the disposal of the Society for the sake of the Kingdom.

Growth and development, human, spiritual, and professional, must continue through all stages of Marist life.

In prayer and reflection a Marist may deepen his understanding of what it means to belong to a Society which bears the name of Mary. For their part the Marists should listen attentively to the word of God to allow the Holy Spirit to form them into better disciples of the Lord.

The Marist prepares for his apostolate by remaining in intimate union with Christ through prayer, by frequent reception of the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, and by studying in depth the person and mystery of Jesus.

Through prayer Marists
will learn to place their gifts
unselfishly at the disposal
of the Society for the
sake of the Kingdom.
