Attention modern mystics, music makers, and prayer-filled pilgrims, NACMS is seeking your help with a new prayer project. We are creating a new prayer resource, and we want your help. (Our apologies for the abundance of alliteration, but we wanted to make a pronounced point!)
If you have written
Marianist or Marian prayers or music, please send them to NACMS. We are creating a new version of our popular
The Marianist Family Prayer Book
, and we welcome your contributions.
Prayer material may include Marianist-inspired prayers or songs pertaining to our holy Marianist forbearers/founders, Marian and Marianist feast days, Mary, community, or various life stages and situations viewed through a Marianist lens (such as family, elderly, diversity, inclusivity, and social justice).
Submissions can be—but are not limited to— praise, intercessions, contemplation and meditation, feast days, dedication/commitment, and lamentations.
Material submitted must consist of original content or a contemporary adaptation of current Marianist contents, such as a new wording for
The Three O’clock Prayer
or Marianist prayers of dedication.
Music submissions must include both lyrics and musical notation.
: All material must comply with US copyright law.
A panel of Marianist experts will review submissions and make recommendations to NACMS for prayers to include in the new prayer book. The panel is comprised of the following people:
· Margy Lisjak: Office of Spirituality for MLC-NA
· Sister Laura Leming: Office of Spirituality for the Marianist Sisters (USA)
· Father Dave McGuigan, Representative for the Office of Spirituality for the
Society of Mary, USA.
Submission is not a guarantee of publication.
Deadline and Submissions
Submissions must be received by Sunday, July 22. Email all material to Dan Jordan,
, or mailed to Dan at the NACMS office.
