How we live

The Marists we strive to be like Mary. We imitate his presence and action in the life of Jesus and the pioneering years of the early Church. Marists inspired by Mary in the Holy Family of Nazareth and among the disciples at Pentecost.

The Marists are called to spread the Gospel of Jesus to Mary's way. This means primarily to preach the Word, which has not been heard and has been renewed where forgotten. The Marist prefer to work with the poor and vulnerable, opting for other jobs that are unattractive or unrewarding.

The Marist live in communities in our relationships forming a family of brothers. We are glad to share our goods and our lives, praying, eating and resting together. The formation of fraternal ties in the community and provides a spiritual human base from which to work participate in apostolic work.
