Marists in New Zealand
Marist fathers and brothers are members of the Society of Mary, a "religious congregation" in the Catholic Church who seek to model their lives on the person of Mary, the mother of Jesus and seek to, as it were 'be' Mary and do her work.
Marist priests and brothers live in community which provides a supportive environment for their lives and ministries.
In New Zealand, Marists focus their ministry on youth and education, have a preference for missionary parishes, and ministry outreach into wider society; beyond traditional Church structures.
In all their ministries members of the Society of Mary remember the original call to mission among the Tangata Whenua.
