What is the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative?

The Marianist Social Justice Collaborative (MSJC) began in 1998 as a means to promote education and action for social justice within the Marianist Family.

our story

Since our founding, we have continued to work for the following vision:

to educate the Marianist Family about social justice

to help Marianist Family members network around common social justice concerns

to serve as an advocate for a more just social order and a sustainable environment 

to provide community reflection and support for Marianists to do the work of justice in the world and in their lives

Women & Justice Community Meeting Kit

The MSJC Women & Justice Issue Team, in partnership with the No. American Center for Marianist Studies (NACMS), has produced the newest Community Meeting Kit on "Seeking Justice and Inclusion for Women in the Church." . These kits include all you need for a community or small group meeting on each topic: an opening prayer, program materials, reflection questions, additional resources, and a closing prayer. 

Songs of Hope Sing-Along Virtual Event

What's New

Join us on October 28th at 7:30 PM EDT/6:30 PM CDT for a live sing-along event with the band Good Trouble whose members include Jim Ford, John Wilson & Dan Frey. The goal of this event is to remove some of the heaviness surrounding us as a result of this pandemic and election season and to bring people together with hope through music. Register here! 

MSJC focuses on six specific social justice issues. These issues are tackled by issue teams that plan yearly goals, create resources for Marianists to use, organize legislative support and outreach, work in collaboration with other justice-oriented organizations, and much more!
