We are living in extraordinary times. This global pandemic is affecting every aspect of our lives. Here at NACMS we would like to chronicle how living in this world as a Marianist has supported or challenged you in this moment.
Because of our work here at NACMS, we understand and honor the power of preserving stories. How often do the letters of Blessed Chaminade, Blessed Adele, and Venerable Marie Therese give us insight into our lives today? We feel the stories we share about how Marianists live in these times will be beneficial today and in the future. We are also in a unique position to gather stories from people sharing this experience from around the world.
This project will continue for some time. For some of you, this may be too soon to share your experiences. Others of you may have insights that will give strength and hope to others today.
It is our ultimate goal to create a special e-version of our
publication as well as collecting video and audio files in the appropriate time. However, if you are feeling so moved, feel free to send your written stories to Patti Gehred at
With the author's permission, we will share stories that may help us feel connected as Marianists during this experience we are all living together, right now.
Stay tuned as this project grows.
