The Society of Mary, the Marists, is an international religious congregation of priests and brothers.

The word “Marist” is derived from the name “Mary”, the mother of Jesus. Marists are those who bear her name, endeavour to live her spirit, and minister in the Church and the world under the name of Mary.

Mission

The Marists are a community of baptized Christian men, priests and brothers, who, heeding the invitation of Jesus to leave all things and follow him.

Our Spirit

The Society, like the Church, finds its model in Mary the woman of faith. Its spirituality is simple and modest in its expression, close to the lives of ordinary people, apostolic in character, and marked by spontaneity and joy. It tries to make its own the Christian experience lived by Mary.
