The North American Center for Marianist Studies provides resources to people interested in the Marianist Family—including brothers, sisters, priests, and lay people—and to Marianist ministries. Through programs, publications, research, and a special library collection, NACMS strives to link the vision of the Marianist Founders—William Joseph Chaminade, Adèle de Batz de Trenquelléon, and Marie Thérèse de Lamourous—to the contemporary Church and world. NACMS is sponsored by the Society of Mary, a Catholic religious order.

We gather together to celebrate and give thanks for the lives of the Blessed Martyrs Miguel, Florencio, Joaquín, and Sabino, and to recommit ourselves to following Christ through their example.

In "The Hurricane of Racism," Ted Cassidy, SM, describes the nature of racism and presents a method to go about changing it. Despite the fact that racism strongly seeks to maintain power, through strong leadership a person or group can bring about a change.

Gold Ring
