On Sunday, we join the universal Church in praying for vocations. We pray in a special way for an increase of vocations to all branches of our Marianist Family – the Alliance Mariale, the Daughters of Mary Immaculate, Marianist Lay Communities, and the Society of Mary.
The World Council of the Marianist Family has again provided a wonderful resource for prayer and reflection called `Witnesses Promote Vocations`. This year`s Vocation prayer resource was produced by the Daughters of Mary Immaculate. It is a valuable resource to use throughout the year.

Our friends in Nairobi share the news of a new Marianist Lay Community. The Gitanga MLC gathered on May 1, 2011. The facilitators included Ann Kihagi, Felistas Kyuli, Lorna Mueni, Fr. Richard Loerhlein, and Douglas. Adrian, who is only eleven years old, gave a presentation on the local Faustino group.
We send warm wishes, blessings, and prayers for continued success and growth to our newest members of the Marianist Family. A report from the meeting can be read by clicking on this link.
I apologize for my absence from this blog. There have been glitches in the blog software that prevented me from posting these past weeks, and life`s busyness prevented me from taking the time to troubleshoot the problems. Now, thanks to the great technical support at Yahoo, the problem was found and repaired. Thank you Louis!
