Ann Mueller has been connected to the Marianist Family since 1988 when she began working for the Society of Mary’s Province of St. Louis. In this episode of Sharing Our Marianist Stories, Ann gives an insider’s view of what it’s like to work for the Society of Mary.

Ann shares how her work with the Society of Mary impacted her spiritual life and reflects on the experience of working for the Marianists before and after the merger of provinces in 2002, which resulted in the inauguration of the Society of Mary’s US Province.

In this episode Bro. Tim Phillips, SM, NACMS’ Marianist Scholar in Residence, provides some background on the significance of a Province and how the Society of Mary’s provincial structure in America has evolved over time.
