We are offering another Marianist Write Now! on March 12-13, 2021. Our topic for reflection will be: "What does it mean for me to live a committed Marianist life?" The program includes time for prayer, writing exercises, and peer consultation. Most of the weekend is personal writing time. Our major caveat? Essays must be completed and submitted by Sunday evening (March 14). To register by March 2 click here.

During the fourth week of Lent, March 14 - 20, NACMS is sponsoring a week-long virtual experience of the Spirit of Saragossa Retreat. There are still some openings for this retreat. Setting aside daily time for focus prayer based on recommendations from the director and meeting daily with the director during the week are the essential elements of this retreat.

Prayer to the Holy Family
by Pope Francis
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendour of true love,
to you we turn with trust.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again
experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may the approaching Synod of Bishops
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.
