About Society of Mary, Marists in the USA, Roman Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Laity
Take Action

Human Dignity is an important Justice and Peace issue for the Society of Mary USA ProvinceYou can make a difference in our world today! There are many ways you can live your faith through action:

  • Prayer and meditation
  • Educate yourself and others about the issues that are important to you
  • Stay informed about issues
  • Show compassion to those marginalized by society
  • Invest in companies that are socially responsible
  • Care for our environment by being a good steward of our shared resources

As Marists, we call to you...

Unless our ministries and mission are positively affecting the lives of those who are materially poor and marginalized in some concrete ways, our Church and Marist documents would say that our mission is not truly being fulfilled, however busy we are. As Pope Francis has been saying, the Good News of Jesus Christ would agree.

We have always seen you as part of our mission and invite you to pray, collaborate, educate and advocate with us on issues of Justice and Peace.

'Good Lord, what a great work education is. There is nothing so arduous, nothing which requires so much tact. I would even say that it is more exhausting than supervising adults. But nothing is more meritorious, and nothing greater. I considered whether we would take a special vow in the Society to devote ourselves to education. It is the greatest work.'

Jean-Claude Colin (FS 13:10)


What does God require of you but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?
