Welcome to the Marist Seminary

International Formation for Priests & Brothers of the Society of Mary

The Marist Life

Marists prefer to work where the Church doesn’t exist or where it is not strong. For that reason they are often out on the ‘boundaries’.

Being a Seminarian

Training occurs in stages. The first stage is Accompaniment. The purpose is to clarify together, or ‘discern,’ what God might be ‘saying’ to this young man.

Vocation & Discernment

A vocation is a work that I feel I am meant to do. The calling may be challenging to you, but, if it is truly our Lord who is calling, then have courage.

Scripture & Prayers to help you discern

It is in times of quiet contemplation of the Scriptures that you are most likely to hear ‘the call’ of God. View the Scriptures section on our Discernment page for more info.
