ASJP’s mission focuses on enhancing social justice interests and awareness among young adults through the gospel message and collaboration with members of the Marianist Family who strive for justice. We recognize that young adults are oftentimes underserved in parish and faith group settings, yet remain a tremendous resource of experience and leadership for our Marianist future. 

Our Mission

Adele Social Justice Project

Engaging Young Adults in Social Justice

The Adele Social Justice Project has put a major focus on hosting community-centered podcast discussion groups within the Marianist Family and beyond. These discussion groups are focused on social justice issues and faith. 
Seeing White Racial Equity Podcast Discussion Series was held in collaboration with the Racial Justice Issue Team. This program features a podcast study group that examines the foundations of whiteness together and its effects on our communities. Over 50 Marianists and Marianist-connected people have attended this. The Racial Justice Team has now taken on facilitating future Seeing White groups.
Another Name for Everything Series is a 7-week series of prayer, reflections and conversations about Richard Rohr's podcast based on his book The Universal Christ. The group engages in weekly  conversations and reflections about the connections between action & contemplation.
Be on the lookout for updates on the next opportunity to join the ASJP team on podcast discussion groups focusing on the above content or other justice issues!

Faithful Citizenship

In the spring of 2019, ASJP co-sponsored an intergenerational retreat in Indianapolis titled Radical Hospitality: Deepening Our Commitment to Social Justice. The retreat focused on how we live out radical hospitality in our work for justice, particularly drawing from the Marianist tradition and Mary's example.
ASJP is planning to host another Intergenerational Retreat when it is safe to do so (exploring 2023).  We hope you'll join us!

Our Current Projects

Inspired by our Marianist foundress, Adele de Batz de Trenquelléon, we engage young adults toward deeper involvement in the Marianist Family, particularly in social justice efforts. Any “young adult” who lives in or is intrigued by the Marianist spirit is welcome to participate in ASJP events. We define a young adult as anyone between 22-39 years of age. ASJP invites recent alumni from University of Dayton, St. Mary’s University, and Chaminade University to join in ASJP events in hopes that new graduates will become familiar with what the Marianist Family has to offer for young adults after college.
