Who We Are

The Marist Brothers are an international community of more than 3,000 Catholic Brothers dedicated to making Jesus known and loved through the education of young people, especially those most neglected. Marist Brothers are educators, counselors, spiritual directors, social workers, youth leaders and missionaries. Every day they influence and transform the lives and situations of thousands of young people through education and spirituality, challenging young people to live their fullest potential in Christ.

While most of the Brothers minister in school settings, others work with young people in parishes, religious retreats and spiritual accompaniment, at-risk youth settings, young adult ministry and overseas missions.

In the U.S. Province there are more than 150 Brothers who live in 32 communities in eight states. Marist Brothers strive to make a difference in the world by showing young people that they are loved, safe and cared for.
