Mission Statement


The Marianist Volunteer Program (MVP) provides opportunities for men and women of faith to share in the Marianist Charism by building a community in mission for peace, justice, and solidarity with the poor and marginalized. The MVP does this by: providing opportunities for faith, spiritual, and personal development; empowering a diversity of volunteers to be partners for peace and justice; experiencing the Marianist vision of lay leadership and community; living out an option for the poor and marginalized through a simple lifestyle and cross cultural service.

Description


Individuals can volunteer with a variety of agencies in San Antonio, St. Louis and East St. Louis, Rockaway Park, N.Y., Cincinnati, Honolulu, and Karonga, Malawi (Africa). Volunteers live in community with other volunteers and take part in community meals, prayer, reflection, and fun. Program coordinators facilitate an opening, mid-year, and re-entry retreat for the volunteers. Volunteers are supported in their ministry sites and local communities by Marianist religious communities and local coordinators.
