Marianists, Province of Meribah
(S.M.) We are a religious community of brothers and priests,
committed to living the Gospel
together and serving Christ and His Church
through the apostolate of education. Dedicating our lives to Mary, we follow her example
of humble service and faithful discipleship. At
the center of our lives are the two tables: the
altar—the table of faith and sacrifice—and the
community table—the table of fraternity and
fellowship. Forming a new, Gospel-based family, we share in common prayer, friendship,
possessions, work, successes, and difficulties.
We aim to make family spirit the distinctive
mark of our communities, growing in the
characteristics of Mary, particularly her faith,
humility, simplicity, and hospitality. Contact:

zones with refugees while others minister to the

to outcasts? Contact us. Fr. Mike Snyder M.M.,

(M.S.F.) The Missionaries of the
Holy Family were founded as a re-
ligious community in 1895 in Hol-
land. Today, over 1,000 priests and brothers
serve in 22 different countries. We base our
community life on the model of the Holy
Family who lived simple lives in faithful re-
sponse to the will of God the Father. We pro-
claim the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Jo-
seph as the standard of holiness for all
families. We strive to live a missionary spirit
by bringing the Gospel message wherever it is
not sufficiently proclaimed. Here in North
America, we are involved as priests and broth-
ers in parishes, schools, and missions. Our
work reflects the care and concern we have for
family life, including the offering of Gregorian
Masses for Holy Souls in Purgatory. May God
bless your family! +JMJ+ Please contact our
