Every school hopes to develop its faculty and staff, but at Marist the goal extends beyond professional development to help adults grow as Catholic educators in the Marist tradition. During the hectic schedule of a school year, faculty and staff members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of spiritual development events that provide community and spiritual growth.
The opportunity to stop and take time for faith and prayer, reminds us of our Marist mission to make Jesus Christ known and loved.
Some events offered for faculty & staff members:
- Adoration of the Eucharist
- Community Dinner & Prayer Nights
- Day long retreat
- Faith-based book club
- Last Sundays Mass Meetup
- Rosary Recitation
- Soup & Substance Lenten Prayer Meetings
- Taize Prayer
- Weekly Morning Mass
Additionally, Marist employees have the opportunity to participate in the Marist Brothers’ Evangelization Program, which offers retreats at the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus, NY. These gatherings allow employees from Marist schools across the country to meet and learn about the greater Marist mission and community.
In November of both 2014 and 2015, faculty and staff members participated in unique retreat days. Each employee was able to choose from a variety of activities including viewing and discussing segments from the Catholicism series, experiencing prayer through music, yoga, or pottery, visiting local shrines and churches, engaging in service opportunities, and more.

"More is caught than taught. When we adults are continually deepening our faith and building our relationship with the Lord, the students will catch on and pursue their own journey of faith. Knowing that we are sending out students who are very well educated and looking to follow the will of God, makes the future look very bright!"
