Marianist Life Community

Marianst LIFE (Living In Faith Experience) Community

  • 15 student leaders help to facilitate and coordinate meetings. [Often “side” or “organizational” meetings are held to help plan larger meetings.]
  • Student leaders invite “guests” (other students) to meetings but all are welcome to attend.
  • Students attending must be in the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.
  • Students meet once a month on Saturdays (typically) for a meeting that goes from 3-5pm then attendance at 5pm mass at Our Lady of Pillar Catholic Church.
  • Average meetings are about 30-40 students.
  • In the Marianist tradition of hospitality, after mass dinner is provided and student leaders serve guests. The meal is taken seriously. Which is to say these are catered meals rather than just ordering pizza.
  • Topics vary:
      • Family
      • Spirituality
      • Community
      • Respect for women (On the Wednesday before Easter break nineteen students prayed the Rosary together.)
  • In order to be a “leader” in our MLC program students must attend the Dayton LIFE program in July.
