The Marist Brothers are deeply committed to living its Mission of making Jesus Christ known and Loved, particularly among the least favored in our world. Coordinated efforts to be in Solidarity with the poorest of our world are lived out in many dynamic ways in all 82 countries that are served by the Marist Brothers.
In the USA Province, every Marist school allocates a significant amount of funding to ensure that many worthy students that would be otherwise unable to avail of a Marist education due to financial hardships are able to do so through a substantial financial assistance program. Additionally, every Marist school offers all its students the opportunity to live our Catholic and Marist values in real concrete ways through various service projects such as volunteering at local homeless shelters, participating in numerous Mission Trips as well as many tutoring programs.
On a Province wide level, the Marist Brothers support a wide range of Solidarity projects, including the following:
During the 2019/20 School year, all Marist Schools in the USA will focus on raising awareness about five worldwide Marist projects that directly assist the many Refugees and Migrants in our world.
