“Marianist stability is seen as remaining in a Marianist community as a spiritual home, where we are formed and to which we return time and time again. Throughout history the way stability has been lived in the Marianist Family has varied, but the spirit of the practice has remained the same. Stability is our consecration to the Marianist Family: to make Mary known, loved, and served. The goal is to  incarnate Christ where ever it is we are in life , meeting the needs of those who are around us, in our time and in our place.” (Things Marianist, Cawley and Cada)
The seeds of Marianist Stability were planted when Blessed Chaminade began the Bordeaux Sodality in 1801. Today, Marianist Sisters and Brothers and some Lay Marianists take a vow of stability that continues to support, strengthen, and challenge the Marianist Family.

In the 2019/20 Marianist Studies Program (MSP) 2.0 we will return to our roots and discover why and how the vow of stability has supported the Marianist Charism for over two centuries. The final projects will explore how we are being called to “incarnate Christ where ever it is we are in life” now and into the future.
