Marianist LIFE Living in Faith Experience

The Marianist L.I.F.E. program has a student leadership team which works with the moderators to plan and execute Marianist L.I.F.E. events and meetings. Leaders are juniors and seniors, who are committed to the Marianist L.I.F.E. program, illustrate leadership skills, have a strong desire to grow in their spirituality and share faith with their classmates.


Club Mission

We are a community of disciples Living In Faith Experience. As a member of L.I.F.E., we illustrate God’s Incarnate Word by personally developing our relationship with Christ and serving the community. Through the L.I.F.E. skills, small group faith sharing and activities, we develop a community with God. The L.I.F.E. family strives to welcome all people to experience Yahweh, who is deeply loving, uplifting and fun.

We promote the Marianist Charisms as well as the Marianist L.I.F.E. skills at our meetings and events. We also challenge our leaders and moderators to live the Marianist L.I.F.E. skills as well as the Marianist charisms in their lives. The Marianist L.I.F.E. skills are: Active Listening, Self-Acceptance, Self-Disclosure, Affirmation, Trust, Be Here Now, Reconciliation, Growing in Christian Community and Discipleship / Commitment to Christ. The Marianist charims we also promote are: Mary as Model, Spirit of Faith, Community, Discipleship of Equals, and Responsiveness to the Needs of the Times.
