A Religious Congregation of women who form one branch of a 'family tree' which includes Marist Fathers, Marist Brothers, Marist Missionary Sisters (SMSM) and Marist Laity.
This website tells us that Marists take Mary as their model. They endeavour to 'think, judge, feel and act' as Mary in all things: 'Mary was present at the birth of the Church as its support. She wishes to be present today through those who live her spirit and do her work of gathering the whole world to her Son, and, being touched by God’s mercy, become united – one in heart and mind.'
June 30 was the Feast of their foundress, Jeanne-Marie Chavoin.
