and brothers. The Marianist Province of the United
States comprises almost 300 professed brothers and
priests serving in the United States. The Province also

lives after Mary, the Mother of Jesus. As part of a wider
Marianist Family that includes Marianist sisters and
committed lay people, they are dedicated to forming
persons and communities of faith through education,
parish work, social service, the arts and other ministries. Brother Tom Wendorf, S.M., Marianist National

world that needs comfort and support. Our ministries are many, such as shrines, parishes, chaplaincies, home and foreign missions, teaching, counseling, music and youth ministries. If you are between
