Dear Administrators and LIFE Moderators;

Since 1970 Marianist LIFE has provided parishes and high schools opportunities for small faith communities to form, grow, and flourish. Our annual summer program provides faith formation for high school students and their adult moderators. The students and moderators participate in a week-long experience of small faith communities, sacraments, prayer, leadership development, retreat and, social justice education. 

To commemorate our 50th anniversary, we will host one national summer program in 2020, bringing together students from across the Province.
