A vocation is an invitation from God to live one’s life in a certain manner. Through the sacrament of Confirmation, we receive Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, including the gift of Counsel. This gift helps you find the best way you can serve God, given your particular gifts, talents, strengths and weaknesses.
The vocation of Marist Brotherhood is to “Make Jesus known and loved". It involves adopting a practical community lifestyle that that looks to Mary as a model. The Marist mission centers around the Christian education of youth with a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of those that are least favored.
There are a variety of ways to discover your vocation. In general, discerning a vocation involves prayer and reflection on how God has spoken to you through your experiences and the people in your life. If you are interested in exploring whether you might have the vocation to be a Marist Brother, we encourage you to take the time to get to know us and consider what God is asking of you.
Our current Vocations Director, Br. Brian Poulin, helps individual men determine whether or not they may be called to life as a Marist Brother. When suitable, discerners are invited to apply for admission to initial formation.
