How to Join Us


1Learning about Marist Life

The best way to learn about Marist life is to ask a Marist. Any Marist would be happy to provide information about the Society of Mary. Those who are interested in knowing more can also contact the Vocations Director.

‘Come and See’ weekends and Vocations workshops are also a good way to have an initial look at Marist life.

2. Accompaniment

The journey of discerning God’s call is an important one. After a period of enquiry, a person can enter “accompaniment”. He meets regularly with a Marist to reflect on his faith journey and life experiences. The person in accompaniment has the opportunity to visit Marist communities and see Marist life ‘close up’.


3. Application

After the accompaniment period, a decision about one’s future is made. If the decision is to pursue Marist life, an application is made to the Marist Superior of the District of Asia.

  • Give me the opportunity to continue with you. I have had a three years experience with Marist of Champagnat in Nigeria. I still love the society of Mary. I wish to be a brother.
