What's New

MSJC celebrates the growth of the new Integral Ecology Team over the past year and shares the good news of the Marianist Family Encounter Project (MFEP).  MFEP will facilitate a multi-year journey of responding to Pope Francis' calls to action in his encyclicals, Fratelli Tutti (2020) and Laudato Si’ (2015).  
This focus will invite us, personally and in our communities and ministries, to bring about meaningful and life-giving encounters at the intersection of the cry of the poor, the cry of the earth, and the gift of our Marianist charism.
