After the fall of communism, Pope John Paul II urged the Marians to be leaders in rebuilding the Church in Eastern Europe. We quicky took action and helped to foster a "re-evangelization" among many of the ethnic populations there. The fruits of our labor yielded an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

In turn, we are able to minister to those most in need on virtually every continent, serving in many hardship areas around the globe. more...


To my brethren, and if I may say it, my sons, I earnestly urge them to love God and neighbor, to have zeal for the Catholic Faith, to love and obey the Holy See, to faithfully obey their vows, to be humble and patient, to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and finally to maintain peaceful relations with everyone.”

Follow faithfully his example and spread Marian devotion all around you. (...)" more...
